    I have been wondering if there is herbal cure for addiction particularly in places or areas where there are no rehab facilities.

    If anyone knows any please share.

    The most well known method to kick out addiction is through chemical methods. For example Buprenorphine is used to wean off addicts of opioid substances from their addiction. There is this Chinese herb called kudzu which has been used for about 600 years. It contains a biochemical compound called puerarin which is used to control drinking. Outside this, eating oranges or bananas helps to cut drinking significantly from experience.

    I have a question. Treating addiction with herbs can work but depending on how long you use the herbs to fight the addiction wouldn't you end up being addicted to the herbs. It may sound absurd but weed is a herb, yes?

    And it's addictive, isn't it?
