    This retrospective study evaluates the efficacy of acupuncture for the prevention of recidivism in the treatment of alcoholism.

    Thirty subjects with a history of heavy drinking were randomly recruited from an alcoholism outpatient clinic.

    The acupuncture group (n=16) received acupuncture in addition to conventional alcoholism treatment ; the control group (n=14) received conventional treatment only.

    Compared to the control group, the acupuncture group showed a significant reduction in relapse frequency (P=025).

    In the acupuncture group, 93.75% of the subjects either remained abstinent or graduated from the program, compared to 42.86% of the subjects in the control group (P=0.002), statistically remarkably significant.
