NADA practitioners are individuals who have completed an acudetox training with a NADA registered trainer. Upon completion, they earn a certificate of training as an Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist (ADS). Trainings are provided through public and private agencies, acupuncture schools, and individual practitioners. State, provincial, tribal and regional laws and regulations vary when it comes to non-acupuncturists practicing acudetox. NADA is working on public health initiatives to expand access to NADA training and practice for allied health workers.
