Addictions we Treat


Kratom, a tree native to Southeast Asia, contains compounds with mind-altering effects and is recognized in discussions about kratom addiction treatments. While it’s not an illegal substance, it can be easily purchased online. Typically sold as a green powder in packets marked “not for human consumption,” kratom can also be found in other forms, such as extracts or gum. It is known by several names, including Biak, Ketum, Kakuam, Ithang, and Thom, and its addictive potential makes the services offered by Achieve Whole Recovery in Denver, Westminster, and Colorado Springs essential.

Kratom can be consumed in various ways, including pills, capsules, extracts, or as a brewed tea. The compounds in kratom leaves, mitragynine, and 7-α-hydroxymitragynine, interact with opioid receptors in the brain, producing effects like sedation, pleasure, and decreased pain. However, small amounts of kratom can also cause increased energy and alertness. The health effects reported from kratom use range from nausea and constipation to severe side effects like seizures and psychosis, underscoring the importance of kratom recovery programs. Achieve Whole Recovery offers comprehensive kratom addiction treatment in Colorado, addressing these varied symptoms and effects.
While there have been reports of deaths related to kratom use, most were linked to the use of kratom with other potent substances like illicit drugs, opioids, benzodiazepines, and alcohol. The FDA indicates that many deaths involved adulterated products, highlighting the risks of unsupervised use. This risk profile emphasizes the need for professional recovery services, such as those provided by Achieve Whole Recovery. It’s crucial for individuals to consult healthcare providers before using kratom or mixing it with other medications. For those in Denver, Westminster, and Colorado Springs, Achieve Whole Recovery’s Kratom Addiction Treatment in Colorado offers a path to safe kratom recovery.
