Vancouver Community Mental Health and Addiction provides community acupuncture for mental health, addictions and complex pain. Individual treatments are offered in a safe, comfortable, group setting. Acupuncture points used in treatment are usually limited to points that can be used while a patient can sit in a chair (usually inserted in the ears, arms or legs). New, sterilized, disposable needles are inserted in various points and the client rests quietly for 40 minutes.
Acupuncture may reduce or eliminate withdrawal symptoms such as drug craving, body aches, headache, nausea, sweating, muscle cramping; lessen depression, anxiety, stress and insomnia; reduce side effects of psychiatric medications; and treat complex pain.
With specialized training & certification, our team of professionals have been providing acupuncture and complementary therapies to the VCH community since 1996.
