Share Article

Prescription drug addiction, coupled with cocaine addiction is rife in the streets of Columbus. New drugs of interest, including Kratom, are gaining steady attention from authorities as potential substances of harm, as reported in a recent article by WKYC.

The inpatient medical detox facility urges caution when actively using drugs and herbal supplements that have not been sanctioned by the FDA.

Columbus is no stranger to drug addiction. The bustling city has seen a steady prevalence of cocaine addiction, and suffers from the potential threat of Kratom. In a report by WKYC on Feb. 27th, the DEA revealed that Kratom is a “drug of concern.” Although Kratom is legally sold as a herbal tea; the newly introduced herb from Southeast Asia acts as a stimulant in low doses, yet mirrors heroin in heightened doses. WKYC notes kratom foments symptoms similar to heroin withdrawal, and includes tremors, irritation, anxiety, and insomnia. Discontinuing the use of kratom is recommended until thorough research either green-lights or red-lights the potential benefits or travails of the questionable substance.

Kratom is sold as a herbal supplement and as a tea by head shops. In Thailand kratom has allegedly been reported to be habit forming. Harbor Village Detox, a national inpatient medical detox center serving the nation in innovative drug detoxification and rehabilitation, remains wary of the introduction of the herbal supplement. The inpatient medical detox facility urges caution when actively using drugs and herbal supplements that have not been sanctioned by the FDA. Harbor Village Detox, who has recently extended renewed efforts to offer drug detoxification to the residents of Ohio, warns potential consumers of kratom to avoid any substance that harbors the risk of rooting habit forming penchants. Additionally, Harbor Village Detox asserts that substances simulating the effects of heroin could be dangerous beyond measure.
