Dr. Michael Smith posted an interesting observation on the Huffington Post Blog. He notes that ear acupuncture can be useful for treating addictions because of the following reasons:

2. It reduces anxiety and agitation while facilitating calm and receptive behavior.
3. It helps develop an inner meditative core in even the most troubled and fearful persons.
