Kratom Drug Treatment

If you’re reading this, it’s time to make a change.

Many people begin using kratom as a means of minimizing dependence on opioids and drugs like heroin and morphine. However, it can quickly spiral into a whole new addiction. Dependence on kratom can become life-threatening in short order and can lead to relapse or new opioid addiction. If someone you love has been using the drug and has become addicted, it is imperative that you step in as soon as possible and help them access the specialized care they need.

Symptoms & Side Effects of Kratom Addiction

Chewing or drinking tea brewed with kratom leaves produces pleasant side effects, often including calmness, a sense of peace and well-being, and generally improved mood. It also increases talkativeness, heightens social behavior, reduces appetite, increases libido, and relieves pain, among other potentially positive changes. In some cases, it can even lead to greater motivation and alertness for users.

However, despite the initial positive effects, kratom use produces many negative symptoms, which often include (but are not limited to):

  • Psychosis
  • Itching
  • Nausea
  • Constipation
  • Dry mouth
  • Excessive sweating

The negative side effects of kratom grow worse with continued use, especially if the user develops dependence, addiction, or both.

Your loved one may be experiencing kratom addiction or dependence if they are unable to function normally without the drug, or if they exhibit any of the following potential signs of misuse:

  • Extremely urgent need to use the drug
  • Resorting to dangerous, unethical, and/or risky behaviors in order to obtain or use the drug
  • Continuing to use the drug despite the dangers involved
  • New money problems, despite employment and an apparent source of income
  • Taking more of the drug than is helpful or necessary
  • Using the substance multiple times each day
  • Swearing off the substance but then resuming use
  • Symptoms of withdrawal after substance use has been discontinued for a period of time
  • Significant changes in mood, behavior, health, physical appearance, social habits, and performance in work or school
  • Legal issues involving drug use or related behaviors
