Kratom Detox

While Kratom is legal in the US and is often used as a dietary supplement to enhance one’s energy and mood, there are many safety concerns and risks of developing a substance use disorder. Often used as a replacement for opioids, a person taking Kratom may use it to offset severe withdrawal symptoms from opioid use. 

If you or a loved one has come to rely on Kratom as a stimulant or a sedative, it may be time to seek treatment for substance abuse. Our team of addiction specialists at Future Now Detox is here to help.

What is Kratom?

Kratom is a tree, native to Southeast Asia, with leaves containing a chemical called mitragynine. Consumption of these leaves has similar effects to traditional opioids and stimulants. Kratom is believed to operate on opioid receptors, so in many cases, users of Kratom take it when experiencing opioid withdrawal symptoms but do not have access to actual opioids. 

Kratom can be taken in the form of a tablet, capsule, or extract, but the leaves can also be dried and ingested as tea. In smaller doses, it acts as a stimulant, giving users more energy. At a slightly higher dose, users may experience a euphoric feeling, and at a very high dose, its effects resemble that of a sedative.

Signs of Kratom Addiction

There are behavioral and physical symptoms of Kratom abuse, both of which can cause serious harm to someone’s life. Behavioral symptoms include being overly talkative, aggressive behavior, obsessing over the next time you will use the drug, and being unable to stop using Kratom. The physical symptoms range anywhere from breathing problems to skin discoloration, to shakiness and weight changes.

Beyond the behavioral and physical effects of this addiction, Kratom abuse has a major effect on someone’s mental health. Many serious symptoms of the addiction, such as anxiety, agitation, delusions, hallucinations, and severe depression all play a part in deteriorating someone’s overall mental state.

Kratom Detox

If you or someone you love is experiencing any of the above signs of Kratom addiction, it may be time for a medically-supervised detox. A medical detox program can be the first step in a long road to recovery.

What is the Detox Process?

Detox is the first step in any substance abuse recovery program, during which individuals suffering from addiction completely stop using the drug. After an extended period of drug use, the body comes to expect these substances and will crave them when someone stops using. It is during this time that someone is likely to experience withdrawal symptoms, which can be uncomfortable and painful. Severe symptoms can be dangerous, so medical professionals must oversee the detox process. 

Kratom Withdrawal Symptoms

Symptoms of Kratom withdrawal are physical and psychological. They include depression, diarrhea, muscle aches, panic attacks, and mood swings. In many cases, someone experiencing Kratom withdrawal is also experiencing opioid withdrawal, which may be life threatening. Since these drugs are oftentimes closely linked, it is even more important to have a medical team helping those suffering through every step of the detox process. Detox may be painful, but it is one of the most important steps of recovery.

Ketamine Addiction Treatment Process

Ketamine abuse does not need to be a lifelong dependency. After going through the detox process, our treatment center will work directly with you to create an individualized plan for long term recovery. Rehabilitation usually involves a combination of many kinds of therapy, including individual therapy, group therapy, and family therapy. 

Addiction is intimately linked with mental illness, so recovery from addiction will focus heavily on mental disorders and general mental health.
