Kratom Abuse

The nation, including Colorado, is being heavily impacted by an opioid epidemic. Opioids include not only illicit street drugs like heroin but also prescription painkillers. Colorado and many of the major metro areas including Boulder, Colorado Springs and Denver are seeing continuing increases in the number of overdoses and deaths related to opioids.

There’s another disturbing trend, however, and that’s the use of Kratom.

Kratom is derived from a plant that grows in Southeast Asia, and it’s believed to have alkaloid components that affect the brain in a way that’s similar to an opiate. What’s happening as Kratom grows in popularity is that people are trying to stop using opioids, only to move to Kratom. They then develop an addiction to the Kratom, so ultimately they’re just replacing one addiction with another.

There is a misconception that Kratom is milder so somehow safer than other drugs, but it is physically addictive just like other opioids.

Some of the many side effects of Kratom can include respiratory depression, agitation, aggression, sleep problems, tremors, constipation, hallucinations, nausea, and vomiting.

So what should you do if you’ve developed an addiction or dependence to Kratom? At The Recovery Village at Palmer Lake, we are one of the few addiction treatment centers with a dedicated Kratom helpline and professional resources that can help you regain control of your life.

Should You Call Our Kratom 24-Hour Hotline?

If you or someone you care about uses Kratom, the following are some things to consider as you decide whether or not to call our Colorado Kratom hotline.

  • Do you want to learn more about the signs of addiction? Maybe you’re using Kratom, or someone you know is, but you’re in denial that it’s become a problem, or you simply don’t know enough about addiction to identify the situation. Our Kratom experts at our Palmer Lake facility can answer questions you have and provide you information about this unique substance.
  • Do you want to receive treatment for Kratom abuse? One of the biggest reasons people contact our free Colorado Kratom helpline is because they feel ready to receive help. What’s distinctive about our Kratom hotline versus national drug hotlines is first the fact that it’s specialized to Kratom, but also that we are a full-service rehab center. This means that we can almost instantly start the approval process and help you move toward treatment.
  • Do you have co-occurring addictions or mental health issues that need to be addressed? Often people start abusing Kratom because they had an addiction to another opioid that never got fully dealt with. People who abuse opioids may also have co-occurring mental health issues such as depression or anxiety. Uncovering, understanding and addressing these issues is incredibly important for a successful recovery, and that’s what we specialize in at our Palmer Lake treatment center.
