I was addicted to opiates for almost 15 years. Like some other addicts, it started by being given pain medication as part of a treatment for a car accident. I didn’t set out to hurt everyone I know, or lose everything to an inevitable addiction. Just happened.
Kratom helped me to save my life. I have tried pain clinics, methadone clinics, suboxone/subutex – All to no end. They are all like heroin- addictive and just as hard to come off of. Furthermore, the expense- Clinics, most of which are in the business of making money, and not helping addicts to Recover while still being able to manage pain.
With Kratom, I am able to work & live a normal life, pain free. I go to meetings, and I still believe in a recovery program. I extend my gratitude to all who have posted, signed petitions, and marched on behalf of all of us who are able to manage pain without opiates, because of the availability of Kratom.
