Drug Overdose Deaths In America Surge To Record High Of 74,000/Year Amid Coronavirus Pandemic; Kratom Can Help Curtail This Devastating Trend

The drug problem in America has been worsening for decades, but the Coronavirus Pandemic has really added fuel to the fire, and now drug overdose deaths have surged to a record 74,000 between April 2019 and March 2020, which is equivalent to over 200 overdose deaths every day, and this yearly overdose rate has likely climbed even higher since March. Further, this number is just the amount of people that have died, and doesn’t account for millions of more people who are suffering from drug problems.

Essentially, the Coronavirus Pandemic has caused job losses and business closures on a massive scale, and this wide scale loss of income has in turn caused a drastic increase in stress and depression, and this stress and depression causes people to use drugs to cope. Also, the Coronavirus Pandemic has forced most people into isolation via social distancing measures, and this isolation leads to depression and drug use.

Unfortunately, even though the Coronavirus has been rampaging through the world for an entire year now, it is continuing to break new records with each passing week, with an infection rate of 700,000 per day worldwide and 200,000 per day in the USA. Therefore, the widespread job losses and social isolation caused by the Coronavirus are likely to increase, and therefore drug overdose deaths will likely continue to climb to new records.

Even though this is a dark situation, there is a glimmer of hope. Kratom, a medicinal plant which is used by 15 million Americans, has been proven to be an effective treatment for opioid dependence. Kratom has been scientifically proven to inhibit, if not completely eliminate, opioid withdrawals, countless subjective reports show that Kratom has helped people to quit even the most addictive opioids such as Heroin and Fentanyl, and there is evidence that Kratom reverses the physiological changes caused by opioid dependence. Simultaneously, Kratom is extremely safe, with zero scientifically proven overdose deaths in history.

Notably, the CDC estimates that 70% of all drug overdose deaths are caused by synthetic opioids and opiates, and therefore Kratom has tremendous potential to significantly curtail drug overdose deaths in America via being used as an alternative to synthetic opioids and opiates.

Further, there is evidence that Kratom is not just useful for helping people to quit opioids, but Kratom is also useful for helping people to quit stimulants like Cocaine and Amphetamines, since Kratom provides the mood lifting and stimulating effects that stimulant addicts are seeking, except Kratom provides these effects in a safe way.

Zooming out, aside from all of the scientific evidence and real-life stories which prove that Kratom can help people get off of drugs, it is quite logical to understand how Kratom targets the root problems that cause drug addiction. Drug addiction is generally caused by stress, pain, and depression, since people seek out drugs to solve those problems. Kratom provides mood lifting and pain relieving properties in a safe way, so once people switch from drugs to Kratom, they tend to not go back to drugs since Kratom alleviates the root problems that cause addiction.

Thus, drug overdose deaths in America have surged to record levels due to the Coronavirus Pandemic increasing stress and depression across our society, but Kratom has been scientifically and subjectively proven to be an effective way to get people off of drugs and save their life, and therefore Kratom can help curtail the rapidly rising drug problem in America.

On a final note, the best way to help reverse the drug overdose explosion in America is to spread this Kratom knowledge to friends, family, and even strangers on the street. If enough people learn about Kratom and begin using it, then the devastating Drug Pandemic could be reversed.
