Here at American Kratom Services Inc. we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2021, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress.

Fear is the mind-killer- Frank Herbert DUNE

Aks inc is here to reduce the strain on Mainstream Medica and Mental Health Services. We provide 100% legal herbal detox protocols. Educating harm reduction methods, and mindfulness techniques using Certified Recovery Mentoring/ Peer Support Services.

AKS inc provides referrals to outside (State) services such as Sober Living, working with like-minded nonprofits and community advocates who specialize and assist with helping find housing, clothing, essentials.

We will volunteer "pay it forward" activism within our programs for volunteers to clean up target areas of trash, minor yard work, and graffiti removal in SE Portland, OR.

 AmericanKratomservices.com will change recovery and addiction medicine forever. Our Holistic approach will establish better relationships within clinical settings. Providing the utmost care and support for everyone that walks through the doors. 

Currently, there are no organic alternatives to opioids, benzodiazepines, methamphetamine, or alcohol treatment. We have testified before the OLCC as well as the State senate talking about the harmful side effects from misuse of Kratom specifically. We never refer to client's products rather we allow them to openly ask for help and seek to open the door to holistic healing and mindfulness practices.

What is Kratom? An herb, a leaf grown in the tropics. Kratom is a sister tree to the coffee family, non-sedative, mu-opioid agonist/antagonist. Small amounts are stimulating and larger amounts can be more pain-relieving and euphoric. Kratom may be used in replacement of or in addition to the most commonly used addiction and pain management medicines used currently. Kratom cannot cause overdose, unlike opioids can. Kratom is addictive and never should be used every day if one does not have chronic pain or addiction issues.

Our executive director is a Certified Recovery Mentor/Certified Peer Specialist, and Kratom expert who has over 5 years of (Kratom) product development, and direct administration of Kratom. He has for the past 3 years successfully used Kratom as an opioid/ alcohol, detox, and titration helper. Joshua Arnold is a published author, public speaker, and podcast host who wrote the protocols that will be used in other states after implementation and execution in Oregon.

Our programs and services are using a 90%+ Mitragynine extraction that is 100% Organic, 100% Heavy metal-free. We only use pharmaceutical-grade products that are lab tested containing <2% 7-hydroxy mitragynine. Each client has a treatment plan drafted upon intake. We will use federal protocols already in place (for addiction medicine services/pain management) with slight adjustments.
