Checkout the full episode here: The Daily Dose Podcast Audio
Happy Friday everyone todays Daily Dose is bringing you a short article talking about how kratom is helping yet another group of people with something very serious and it’s called AUD an issue that 14.5 million people suffer from ages 12 and up.
AUD stands for alcohol use disorder and has been a growing problem for years among young people. In this episode I’ll read to you the brief article to share what it has revealed relating to kratom, unfortunately it does not specify which alkaloid of kratom was isolated and how it was delivered to patients undergoing the study.
Towards the end I’ll share with you a case I encountered here at the shop years ago relating to AUD and how it actually worked out for that individual. Kratom has been useful for so many and it’s been remarkable in it’s effect so many across our country have self reported results that can not be ignored or denied.
With so many finding it useful and now more medical evidence suggesting other aspects of the chemical make up of kratom are also useful we can expect new developments for treatment and perhaps even turn the tide on a growing narrative that kratom is bad, or kratom is not safe nor useful as some medical professionals have stated.
The Details Of AUD
In the age of modern medicine, we find ourselves at the crossroads of innovation and tradition. One such botanical marvel, Kratom, is emerging as a potential game-changer in the battle against Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD).
This comprehensive exploration dives deep into the world of Kratom, shedding light on its components, real-world applications, and the path it paves towards a brighter future for those struggling with AUD.
In the past year. This includes:
- 28.6 million adults ages 18 and older (11.3% in this age group)
- 894,000 adolescents ages 12 to 17 (3.4% of this age group)
- 16.6 million males ages 12 and older (12.1% in this age group)
AUD is more prevalent in individuals with lower levels of education and lower income. About 1 in 8 men, 1 in 10 women, and 1 in 30 adolescents (aged 12-17) meet the diagnostic criteria for AUD.
Some studies on alcohol use disorder include:
- Research that characterizes alcohol use disorder profiles to predict treatment outcomes
- Clinical trials at the Mayo Clinic, including:
- A study of the use of varenicline to treat smoking addiction in patients with alcoholism
- A study to evaluate heart rate variability in alcohol-dependent subjects in treatment
- A study that learns more about how some people can control and train their brain activity when feeling the urge to drink
About 88,000 people die as a result of alcohol every year in the United States. Only about 7% of people with alcohol use disorder ever get treatment.

- Collectively, Americans lose over 3.59 million years of potential life due to excessive drinking.
Understanding Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD)
Before we embark on our journey to understand Kratom’s potential, let’s first delve into the nuances of AUD. The prevalence of AUD among young individuals has surged in recent years, posing a significant challenge to both healthcare providers and society as a whole. But hope emerges on the horizon, wrapped in the leaves of the Kratom tree.
Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) is a widespread and concerning public health issue in the United States, as reflected by national data. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), it is estimated that approximately 14.1 million adults in the U.S. grapple with AUD.
This pervasive condition not only affects individuals’ physical and mental health but also imposes a substantial economic burden, with costs related to healthcare, criminal justice, and lost workplace productivity amounting to hundreds of billions of dollars annually.
AUD manifests in various forms, ranging from mild to severe, and its prevalence underscores the pressing need for effective prevention, intervention, and treatment strategies to mitigate its impact on individuals and society as a whole.
Kratom: A Step Towards a Brighter Future
As Kratom gains momentum as a potential solution for AUD, we discuss the broader implications and future possibilities that this botanical ally offers. It’s a promising step forward in the quest for an effective treatment.
Kratom, a tropical plant native to Southeast Asia, has gained attention as a potential ally in addressing Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD). Emerging data suggests that certain alkaloids found in kratom may help reduce alcohol cravings and withdrawal symptoms, offering a novel avenue for AUD treatment.
