Acupuncturists are not licensed in Alabama.

Practice by Others

Only a medical doctor, osteopath, or chiropractor may practice acupuncture in Alabama.  There is no specific training required for a medical or osteopathic doctor to practice acupuncture.  The Medical Licensure Commission of Alabama Rule 545-X-4-05 mandates that licensed physicians who practice acupuncture must comply with FDA requirements.

There is no provision for the practice of acupuncture by chemical dependency specialists.
