Kratom and withdrawals
Yerachmiel Donowitz Says...
"Do you support or recommend the herb kratom for people going through heroin withdrawals? Do you think that people will get addicted to it if they just use it for the first 2 weeks?"
This herb is unregulated and not that well known in this country. It seems clear that it is addictive. It could be that it may help with opiate withdrawal and as a step down withdraw from it. The issue is how much for how long and if what you get is pure. It seems a little like playing "Russian Roulette". Physical addiction is one powerful aspect of opiates, but the other aspects are important to address as well. Bottom line, I can not recommend it. Detox is best done under supervision and addressing the entire aspect of addiction. Good luck on your path to be healthy.
