So, who are we and what are we about?

Who we are has evolved. We started off as Mark and Haley, with the help of some medical staff. But now we are much much more.

Mark and Haley are a married couple who are passionate about healing ourselves and spreading this out into the world. We’re seekers by nature, laid back, adventurous and enjoy being around people.

We came to working with these alternative treatments after we used them personally for our own growth and deepening. First we experienced Iboga, then Kambo.

After using these treatments we noticed an immediate sense of relief from addiction, disruptive habit structures, mind chatter, self destructive tendencies, depression and a deepened experience in the world. This all served as a catalyst to learn more and do some deep study about these alternative options.

Through much study and further use of these plants, we came to realize that working with plant medicines is our calling. We came to understand that we our purpose is to spread the knowledge of these powerful tools for self development and addiction cessation.

It became clear that if we wanted to have a real impact on the world, we need to grow. We need to expand and become more than just “Mark and Haley”. So, we started looking around and asking for help. Now, we have a great team, comprised of a complete medical team, a massage therapist and multiple other support people.

We are so proud to be able to offer a more full, more effective and a super safe ibogaine treatment to every guest who comes to visit. This has been a lifelong journey for us and we’ve made it. We finally got to the place where we can say we have one of the best plant medicine centers in the world.

Over time, we’ve refined the experience that you have as a guest. When you arrive you can expect to be treated as an old friend. We do the entire treatment in a home, so you have a bed and breakfast feeling. Different from other centers, we intentionally steer away from the sterile, clinical type of environment. We believe this enhances your comfort, level of trust and most of all the long term results.

The space we aim to create is one of highest health, compassion, safety and grounding. This helps you to feel you’re in a loving environment and have room to shed and grow as needed. By being in a comfortable setting where highest-self living is the primary focus, you have space to relax, recharge and enjoy.

The Sunrise Center‘s job is to administer Kambo, Ibogaine and Iboga in a safe, beneficial way and to hold space for you during your stay. We will support you and encourage you to thrive. We’re committed to ensuring effective and beneficial results during your time with us.

Expect a chill, grounding and fun environment. The team is welcoming and very friendly. There’s an emphasis on music, cooking great food, laughing and spending time doing adventurous and fun stuff.

Before traveling to The Sunrise Center read about the preparations we recommend. Also, there’s a few important contra-indications to note. Make sure you read about these. If you have any questions about the details, please be sure to contact us right away.

    Hi I havnt spoke with my friend yet I imagine he’s in bed he’s got a new born and 2 step kids that got school anyhow lemme kno wut I need to do and hopefully I’ll kno more by him tomorrow. Also do we do this all consecutively and hav a couple days of recovery time I couldn’t remember if u said we did the ayahuasca right after the ibogaine. One last thing is I was curious if you’ve treated anyone on a high dose of benzos like myself and how the ayahuasca affected them opposed to Somone who isn’t having to take them from being addicted so long. Not that the drs really helped other than to push more meds on me. Seems that’s all they do these days. Who wants a cure wen thers money to b made right. Hava good night am thanks a bunch

    I have been an addict for over 40 years. The old adage “i am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I am a U>S> Army Veteran. I have also been going through years of attempting to get VA benefits pension and compensation. I have one appointment on Dec. 23,2014 to determine the status that the VA appoints to me. I am an Honorable discharged veteran, I also have Medicare and Medicaid. This may or may not have any bearing on being able to afford the promising treatment of ibogaine treatment. I live from day to day with finances.

    My son is in need of treatment. We live in San Diego so this is good! Of course cost is important but the place of treatment is the most important for us. 6 year IV heroin user and now the pharm from all the addiction centers. Benzos, subs, celexa and serequil. So sad. 32 yr old. How soon could he come? How many do you treat at one time? How long is your program? Thanks, Linda

Or if you have any places you’d recommend that would be great.. look forward to moving forward.
