Opiate drugs, from strongest to weakest

Addiction Professionals can help with Opiate addiction.

Do you feel like you are fighting a losing battle, trying to get your loved one to commit to drug or alcohol treatment? Are family members fighting over the “right thing to do”? Are you considering a professional intervention? Are you confused by terms like enabling and codependency, or struggling with tough love?

You don’t need to wait for your loved one to hit rock bottom. A professional intervention by a certified interventionist is designed to raise the bottom. The role and goal of a professional family interventionist or certified interventionist is to educate the family system and begin changing behaviors.

Is Kratom an opiate?

Kratom, a powder derived from the leaves of a Southeastern Asian tree, is sometimes mentioned alongside opioids.

Kratom has had a checkered history with legality in the United States; however, is currently legal and readily available in many places, including my own state of Tennessee. At the time of this writing, kratom is very easily obtainable; it can be seen for sale in most vape shops, head shops, and also around or behind the counter at numerous convenience stores.

Kratom is not technically an opiate as it does not come from (nor is it based on) opium; however, its effects on the mood are very similar to a light opiate such as codeine. Kratom may have some beneficial use as a tool to ease opioid withdrawal symptoms.
