Kratom Addiction


Struggling with a kratom addiction can be overwhelming, and for some, it may feel difficult to stop. Too many times, people try to detox on their own, then the withdrawal sets in, and they fear that the entire course will be excruciating. At this point, most quickly revert to using again to feel better. However, a safe, medically supervised kratom detox at BriteLife is completely comfortable.

At our Hanover addiction treatment center, we use the latest detox medicines to get you or a loved through the withdrawal period.  Next, clients transition to residential treatment where they begin to work on themselves. BriteLife’s rehab programs can help you or someone you love to begin their recovery from Kratom addiction. We tailor our treatment plans to fit the distinctive needs of each person in our Pennsylvania substance abuse treatment center. Our team of doctors, nurses and therapists are committed to providing a healing experience that is centered in overall health, wellbeing, and recovery.

Kratom leaves come from mitragyna speciosa, a native tree in Southeast Asia. It has been used as an old-fashioned medicine opiate substitute for more than 100 years. Kratom advocates believe it is a useful drug to fight opioid addiction. Most people experience the effects of kratom in one of two ways. Kratom use has grown in the United States and is thought to relieve pain as well as combat depression and anxiety.

The sale and distribution of kratom is legal in 42 states and online. At the same time, kava bars have popped offering an alternative to alcohol bars. They typically sell kava, kratom and extracts of each product.  Most states require purchasers be 18 years of age or older. The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) wanted to ban the sale of kratom by categorizing it as a Schedule 1 drug but later decided to delay its decision. Also, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning against its use and is a drug of concern.

Kratom withdrawals symptoms include:

  • Moodiness
