RMA Nights! The Kratom Withdrawal Nightmare With Jeff & Bianca D.
Play • 1 hr 49 min

RMA-Episode 57 Show Notes:


Did you ever think you were making progress in your recovery only to be derailed by something that you thought was helping you? That’s what happened to this week’s guests Jeff and Bianca D. Some of you may recognize Jeff’s name from the RMA Facebook group where he is one of the moderators. He also designed the latest RMA T-Shirts (available for purchase at www.middleagesrecovery.com)! 


Jeff and Bianca  join us this week to talk about how Bianca’s use of Kratom went from a seemingly harmless, occasional habit, to a full-blown addiction requiring a lengthy detox and recovery period. Their story is a cautionary tale about what can happen when recovery goes sideways. Tune on to hear the rest of the tale, this week on RMA.


Plus, the week in review, the Monksters Speak and so much more on a detoxified, extracted, early-bird special episode of Recovery in the Middle Ages

If you’re in trouble with substance abuse and need help, reach out. There are thousands of people who have put problems with addiction in their rear-view mirrors and you can be one of them. While we neither endorse nor condemn any particular program, the sheer number of available AA and NA meetings suggest that reaching out to those organizations would be a good first step on the road to recovery.
