Kratom Detox Program
What is Kratom?
Kratom is a medicinal herb indigenous to Southeast Asia. It is exported to the United States and other countries as it has become popular to use because many people report it has similar effects that opiates cause. Opiates like heroin and prescription pain killers cause a person to feel sleepy and relaxed, as well as to experiencing euphoria.
When certain substances cause a person to feel high, there is a risk for addiction. Any substance that causes euphoria or has psychoactive effects, mainly when they cause the brain to release pleasure activating chemicals such as dopamine or serotonin it can easily be abused or cause addiction.

What is Karatom Used For?
The Food and Drug Administration reports that Kratom is marketed for its medicinal properties, which can be misleading. The FDA also states that the marketers of Kratom push that it is a safe herb because it is natural and, therefore, should not be addictive. The argument here is that marijuana, as well as opium poppy seed plants, are natural plants, and both cause addiction.
According to the Federal Food and Drug Administration:
Proponents for Kratom argue that it is a safe substance mainly because it is a plant-based product. The FDA knows people are using kratom to treat conditions like pain, anxiety, and depression, which are serious medical conditions that require proper diagnosis and oversight from a licensed healthcare provider. We also know that this substance is being actively marketed and distributed for these purposes. Importantly, evidence shows that kratom has similar effects to narcotics like opioids, and carries similar risks of abuse, addiction, and in some cases, death. Thus, it is not surprising that often kratom is taken recreationally by users for its euphoric effects. (FDA)
Kratom Withdrawal Symptoms
Addiction to Kratom can mirror opioid withdrawal symptoms, although not as severe. The chemical compounds in Kratom are not the same as opioid compounds that are found in drugs like heroin and prescription opiate medications, but Kratom does act on the same opioid receptors that these same opioids affect. Typical opioid withdrawal symptoms begin with flu-like symptoms that worsen as time goes on without using the drug. Opioid withdrawal symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, fever, chills, sweating, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Kratom detox symptoms are more likely to cause the following:
