Psychiatrists Are Trying To Make The Case That Kratom Users Should Be Treated With Buprenorphine/Naloxone (Suboxone), Which Is A Drug That Has A Heavier Physical Addiction Than Heroin

A study has been published by the Department of Behavioral Medicine and Psychiatry at the West Virginia University School of Medicine, and it essentially calls for Kratom users to be treated with Buprenorphine/Naloxone, also known as Suboxone. This is despite the fact Buprenorphine carries a far heavier and much harder to break physical addiction than Heroin according to countless subjective reports.

This study is based around a 47 year old patient who originally got addicted to prescription narcotics, and then the doctors cut off this patient from their prescriptions. The patient then sought out Kratom as an alternative to prescription opioids.

The psychiatrists who wrote this study claimed this person had worsening chronic pain, anxiety, and depression, and they blame this on Kratom without any evidence, in addition to saying the patient showed signs of Kratom tolerance and withdrawal.

The psychiatrists then decided that more prescription narcotics was the solution to this problem and gave the patient Suboxone, despite the fact that the patient’s problems were originally caused by prescription narcotics. This is like trying to solve a 3rd degree burn with fire.

Further, the psychiatrists also threw highly addictive and dangerous Benzodiazepines into the mix to ‘cure’ this patient.

The doctors then claim that the patient’s anxiety and depression ‘resolved’ after 4 months and his medication was discontinued. In other words, the doctors cut off this patient’s meds again, which was the reason the patient sought out Kratom in the first place. 

Of course, these psychiatrists will not be writing another paper if this patient ultimately has a mental break down or starts using hard drugs after 4 months of being treated with Suboxone and Benzodiazepines and then being cut off from his meds. 

The psychiatrists conclude by acting like this is a big success, and say that Kratom is just as addictive as opioids, and that Kratom users should be treated with Suboxone.

Of course, the reality is that this is incredibly sinister. Scientific studies have proven that Kratom has little no addiction potential, and carries very little physical withdrawals, and the psychiatrists who wrote this study are framing Kratom as an addictive opioid without any evidence, just to push their agenda of getting Kratom users addicted to prescription narcotics.

Indeed, I have personally read over 100 real-life accounts about how Buprenorphine withdrawal is even harder to beat than Heroin withdrawal, and it makes no sense to give this highly addictive substance to Kratom users.

Ultimately, the only logical conclusion is that this is an evil plot to turn Kratom users into prescription opioid addicts, which will generate more profits for Big Pharma. Hopefully no one falls into this trap.
