The main framework of the NADA Five Point Acupuncture protocol   training is experiential and hands on. All trainees are assessed for their competence, sensitivity and health and safety in the delivery of the treatment protocol. Health and safety is a major aspect of the training, along with a basic understanding of the theory of Chinese medicine and how this relates to addiction/mental health issues. The workshop is interspersed with clinical practice throughout and it is helpful, although not essential, to receive treatment as well as deliver it. Successful completion leads to NADA-UK certification.
