The common addictions are to 

1) Alcohol

2) Smoking

3) Tobacco chewing

4) Morphine, ‘ganja’, Aphim, Charas

5) Some drugs like analgesics, 

sedatives, tranquillisers etc.,

If somebody asks us whether we can treat addiction keeping in mind that electro-acupuncture itself may cause addiction! We have seen many patients particularly children in the age group of 6-12 years. Who get addiction of electro-acupuncture probably due to euphoric sensation caused by electro-acupuncture. While going to their family doctor these children are hesitant due to fear of injection but while coming for acupuncture treatment they are more eager to get the treatment. After completion of the acupuncture sitting they request us to keep the needles for some more time.
