I missed the part about the Kratom earlier. Honestly if Kratom works for you, then I say go for it. They have done addiction tests on it and found it to not be physically addictive, though you can most definitely develop a psychological one (though that is true of everything… Even television or forums). If you think about it people who take a medication to be able to function normally (or at least their version of normal) are dependant on a drug, though it is in a controlled setting.
As for the Kratom, the largest issue is that the US is currently trying to either ban or schedule it, so you could become psychologically dependant on it and have it taken away from you cold turkey, which often leads to depression if you were using it to treat ADHD symptoms.
