Kratom and The Opioid Crisis
The Opioid Epidemic
The opioid epidemic is a serious crisis in the United States. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), opioid-related deaths have more than quadrupled since the year 2000. While natural and semi-synthetic opioids had been the leading cause of overdose deaths, deaths occurring from heroin, opiates and other synthetic opioids have skyrocketed at an alarming rate. As researchers, medical professional and treatment centers try to keep up with the increasing number of patients struggling with opioid addiction, drugs like kratom have been marketed as safe and natural alternative treatments for opioid withdrawal.
The only proven, effective way to stop using opioids safely is through professional, medical treatment programs. Medical treatments that use opioid replacement therapy under the direction and supervision of licensed medical professionals, combined with therapy and counseling is the best way to treat opioid addiction. Using an unregulated, untested product puts people struggling with addiction in danger of increased dependence, more severe withdrawal symptoms and potentially deadly overdoses.
