Has anyone had any experience with Kratom? I've searched the web to see if it's addtive . I'm not finding anything. I was hoping it's something I could try until the depression stage gets better.  THANKS!

Kratom is an opioid agonist, like morphine. Basically that's treating an opiate addiction w/ an opiate.

There's no "magic" cure, my friend. Just time and a program. Time and a program.

IMO....Kratrom comes with its own demons.  If your looking to get clean, doing it with this is NOT a good idea.  It IS addictive and will just prolong what you will have to do anyway.
