NADA Communities of Recovery and Psychological First Aid

The National Acupuncture Detoxification Association is pleased to announce its 22nd annual conference will be held on May 20 - May 21, 2011 in Kansas City, Missouri, with a pre-conference Acu Detox Specialist training May 15-May 21 (includes 2-day conference).

The keynote speaker will be award winning investigative journalist Robert Whitaker, who emerged in 2010 as a leading critic of the drug-based psychiatric health care paradigm. Whitaker will present his research, and will also serve on a conference panel alongside clinicians discussing the use of NADA methods to assist in tapering off of psychiatric medication.
