What is the efficacy of Ibogaine?

 In Uncategorized

If you’re reading this post, you’re wondering, “does Ibogaine work?”

It’s a fair question. There’s so much out there on the internet these days it’s hard to know what to believe. It’s hard to know who to trust and it’s unclear if any of this you’ve heard about ibogaine and its therapeutic clams is real.

And I get it. I get that it sounds too good to be true.

The thing is, it does work.

I’m sitting at my kitchen counter writing this, while someone is upstair recovering from Ibogaine therapy yesterday. She’s a 20 year long oxy/heroin user, her last dose of opiates was 50 hours ago and she’s sleeping right now. Sleeping.

All of you know, she should be in full blow, hard core, crapping her pants withdrawal and cravings right now.

And she’s not an exception. This happens over and over and over here. People participate in ibogaine therapy and they get clean. It’s just a fact. It will absolutely detox you. So, “does Ibogaine work?”

Yes. Most definitely.

There’s no question in  my mind about that. I know it does.

You may have heard about people relapsing after taking Ibogaine. If it works so well, why did they relapse? Another fair question. It’s one that Mark and I have asked many times and done a lot of research about.

What we’ve discovered is that there’s three levels to recovery success.

Withdrawal, cravings and habits (or re-integration). Ibogaine takes care of the first two very well. The thing it can’t do though, is change the environment that someone goes back to after getting clean. If people go back to the same house, routine, job, friends, activities they were in before the chance of long term success goes down.

The habits are what will get you.

We’ve found that the people who are super committed, the ones who change city, change their friends, change their whole routine are the ones who do the best. It’s important to restructure your life as much as you possibly can. Ideally with really big changes and help you to your complete recovery.

But if you can’t move or change jobs make sure you get involved with something. Volunteer or take a class. Make some friends who don’t even know you used to use. And yes, it’s okay to not tell people you used to be an addict. This can be something that can be in your past and stay in your past.

Do yourself a favor, if you plan to choose to enroll in an ibogaine treatment program, make sure you have a plan for after you get home. Remember, big changes. That’s the key to long term success.
