My partner has previously struggled with benzodiazepine addiction and was hopsitalised two years ago due to his withdrawrals. since coming out of hospital he started taking Kratom which is similar to an opioid. His use has increased dramatically and he is now trying to quit cold turkey.
Due to the type of drug kratom is and the fact it isn’t very well known here (UK) I am struggling to get assistance from our GP / local drug misuse services. I am very anxious and I am having panic attacks due to the pattern / similarities between this occasion and his last withdrawrals which resulted in hospitalisation.
I could really do with some advice on how to cope with his withdrawrals and if anyone has experienced anything similar.
Big hugs to all x
