Yes. Yes, for sure! Ibogaine aftercare is absolutely essential. It’s actually the difference between the people who stay off their drugs of choice long term and those who done. Ibogaine practitioners around the world know this, I know this and I want you to know this.
I want you to get it.
I want you to feel how true this is.
Almost all of the “aftercare” out there is informed by the typical way of dealing with addiction recovery. This usually looks like reaffirming the idea that an addict is an addict forever. That this is a disease to live with for the rest of your life and you have to learn to “survive” it.
Those of us in the ibogaine world know that this is a narrow view.
We know that ibogaine creates a big shift. Bigger than typical detox. Because of this ibogaine aftercare needs to be something different. We know (usually from our own experience), that addiction is a state of being. This state of addiction can be moved through and moved beyond. It is not something that has to hang on you for the rest of your life. You can and will move past this, if you set yourself up to.
The best thing I can say is that you need guidance. Leaving your ibogaine retreat without having a plan and with no continued support is not the way to be successful. Many people are eager to put this behind them and just forget about this addiction phase. Believe me, I get that. I get not wanting to talk about it every again, or even to think about it.
Yet, experience has shown me it takes more than that. The time after your ibogaine experience is amazing and inspiring, but it’s delicate. And you need guidance.
So, what is ibogaine aftercare?
I encourage you to try the above list when you’re looking around and discovering what ibogaine aftercare will be for you. It’s important to do something. Your long term success is determined by how deeply you understand this and how sincerely you try.
