An important message from Casa Santa Isabel Clinic
Recently there have been an alarming number of unlicensed ibogaine facilities appearing in Baja, California. Most are run illegally out of rentals such as airbnbs, apartments, condos, etc. Ibogaine treatment is a very delicate matter that must be administered in a certified clinic under the care of experienced doctors and nurses who have immediate access to the most up to date medication and lifesaving equipment. If you are looking for a discount we may be able to work with you, but please do not risk your health at an underground clinic.

Casa Santa Isabel

Why chose our Ibogaine treatment over conventional drug and detox treatments?

Research has proven that a single dose of Ibogaine can significantly end withdrawal symptoms as well as cravings and significantly reduce addictive behaviors. Conventional methods are simply incapable of providing anything close.

Conventional treatment centers have switched from Methadone to Suboxone. The problem with Suboxone is that it causes Anhedonia, which is the inability to experience pleasure from activities that used to be enjoyable, such as exercise, hobbies and music.

No conventional method is capable of ending cravings as fast as Ibogaine. This is the primary reason of relapse and the low success rate of conventional rehab methods.

Ibogaine HCL is able to alleviate opiate withdrawal symptoms from the very first dose, and within 2-4 hours withdrawals are gone.

Ibogaine is a natural compound that is extracted from plant root sources, unlike various synthetic medications like Suboxone that are highly addictive and toxic.

Due to the non-addictive nature of Ibogaine, there is no potential for abuse.


NAD+ IV Therapy

Casa Santa Isabel Clinic now offers NAD+ IV therapy.

Studies have shown that NAD+ can aid in the regeneration of opiate receptors, reducing cravings and softening the effects of withdrawals. This can lead to reduced substance dependence and faster addiction recovery.

Whether you’re battling a chronic condition or just want to improve your body’s performance and your overall feeling of wellness, we can help. Our NAD+ infusions are 100% safe and natural.

We provide you with a full staff including nurses, cook, psychologist, and shaman.

We encourage potential patients to do their research when considering a clinic.

Casa Santa Isabel strives to be your best option…

  1. Safety is our number one priority
    • Ibogaine is relatively safe when administered by professionals in a clinical setting. Before any treatment is started, patients undergo a physical exam including extensive lab work and an ECG. The results are closely reviewed by our doctor. After passing our physical, the likelihood of experiencing negative effects during Ibogaine treatment is extremely small. However, we are fully equipped to handle life threatening emergencies on the spot. We pride ourselves on the expertise of our staff and our state of the art medical equipment.
    • On-site lab for immediate blood work. Our state of art lab can deliver results to our staff in minutes for the most up to date status on your health.
  2. Our Ibogaine is legally imported and independently tested for purity
    • Ibogaine is cultivated in West Africa and only a few suppliers have the appropriate qualifications to process and export pure Ibogaine HCL. In addition to only purchasing from highly reputable sources, we take it a step further and independently test each and every batch we receive. Unlike many other clinics, we are licensed by the federal government to import Ibogaine. The fact that Ibogaine is legal in Mexico does not make it legal to import or administer for clinical use without authorization. We have gone out of our way to obtain the necessary permits from both customs and the health administration. This allows us to obtain the highest quality medication for our patients.
  3. On site treatment
    • We are a fully licensed clinic and this allows us to safely provide Ibogaine treatment on site. The vast majority of clinics do not have a medical license and illegally administer Ibogaine on their premises. Other unlicensed centers transport their customers to a private hospital for treatment, usually requiring a 2 day stay in a small hospital bed before being returned to their facility. Patients at Casa Santa Isabel remain in the comfort of our amazing retreat throughout the entire recovery process. This allows us to ensure your safety and well-being.
  4. Complete care
    • At Casa Santa Isabel we understand that you or your loved one is going through a trying time. We do our best to make the rehabilitation experience as enjoyable as possible. All Ibogaine clinics offer Ibogaine treatment… we offer a complete experience by incorporating body, mind and soul. Body: The Casa Santa Isabel medical staff ensures the health and well-being of patients. Our goal is for you to return home much healthier than when you arrived. Mind: Our top-notch psychologists are experienced in addiction treatment and spiritual growth, giving our patients constant care during their stay and offering aftercare referrals if necessary. Soul: We believe that your rehabilitation success is amplified by clearing away any negative energy accumulated during your addiction. Spiritual cleansing is offered before, during and after treatment. Our shaman will treat you to an authentic Meso-American temazcal ceremony in our sweat lodge. Meditation and yoga workshops allow our patients to gain inner peace during their journey to recovery. We offer a custom built jacuzzi and a sauna to encourage relaxation. Healthy meals and snacks are prepared fresh on location. All guest rooms are private and accessible only by individual patients and staff. Our location was specifically chosen for its positive energy and stunning views to help our patients connect with themselves and nature.
  5. Affordable
    • Our facility was created to provide the highest quality care at an affordable price. We employ an experienced staff who genuinely care about the success of patients. Our furnishing and medical equipment are periodically updated for comfort and safety. The location is private, serene and close to the United States. Casa Santa Isabel is rich in warmth and amenities that you won’t find at any other Ibogaine clinic. All for the same or lower cost than our colleagues.
  6. We understand your struggle
    • Casa Santa Isabel exists because we know how hard is it to find proper care. The founders have personal experience with addiction and rehabilitation. We understand that the journey to recovery can be terrifying, and at times it feels like the pain of addiction is more bearable than seeking treatment. We want to assure you that we are on your side and we will try our best to get you through the woods and back on track.

What is ibogaine therapy?

Ibogaine is used therapeutically for several indications, particularly detoxification from opiates. It has been shown to decrease the self-administration of stimulants, opiates, and alcohol, as well as significantly reduce withdrawal symptoms from opiates after a single treatment. Other research shows a reduction of developed tolerance to opiates and alcohol and a significant decrease in cravings for an extended period of time after treatment. Click here …

Ibogaine News & Articles

  • psychedelics can change humanity for the better its time to unlock their power

    MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies) is a non-profit research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics. Rick Doblin is a researcher at MAPS, and in “Psychedics can change humanity for the better. It’s time to unlock their power,” he delivers one of the most compelling cases for a range of psychedelics in helping those suffering from mental health and addiction issues. 

    Doblin and his team work primarily with MDMA, ketamine, psilocybin, and ibogaine. As Doblin rightly states, indigenous communities worldwide have used psychedelics for hundreds, if not thousands of years in spiritual ceremonies and for healing. MAPS collaborates with researchers to facilitate the studies of psychedelic-assisted therapy with the hope that these interventions eventually become mainstream. MAPS research has found great effectiveness with ibogaine to treat opioid use disorder.

  • ibogaine for addiction treatment

    In 1962, a prominent scientist by the name of Howard Lotsof and his six friends decided to ingest ibogaine powder. The reason why? They were struggling mightily with heroin addiction and were on their last legs. The result – five of the six immediately quit heroin. 

    Far from a robust longitudinal study, the results fascinated many. Fast-forward to the present and we know ibogaine has the potential to ameliorate a host of maladies. We’re treated to a comprehensive summary of the future of ibogaine in  “Ibogaine Use in Addiction Treatment: An Overview.” The global drug addiction treatment market is expected to reach a staggering $37.7 billion by 2027. It is hard to find anyone who does not know someone struggling with an addiction. It is for this reason that ibogaine is now on the radar of leading life-science firms.

  • what if everyone took psychedelics

    Psychedelics have a long history in popular culture. Typically viewed as counter-culture, primarily due to their Schedule-1 classification in the US and a Class-A classification in the UK, psychedelics are not entirely legal as any savvy reader could tell you. With that said, we have certainly witnessed waves of psychedelic renaissances over the years. Yet, it would appear that the last 5 years have been different. 

    As Ed Prideaux details in “The worldview-changing drugs poised to go mainstream,” the difference we’re experiencing today is the psychiatric acceptance of psychedelics like ibogaine to treat a range of conditions: childhood autism, depression, criminal recidivism, schizophrenia, and alcoholism. A mind-boggling 6,000 studies covering 40,000 plus patients have been completed and the data could not be clearer.

  • osoyoos indian band eyes cutting edge drug treatment centre

    Partnerships exist in all walks of life. But a collaborative project between the Osoyoos Indian Band (OIB) and a company called Universal Ibogaine might be the first of its kind. 

    Ibogaine has been a staple of many West African communities. Derived from the iboga shrub, its history as a spiritual sacrament is well-founded. But it wasn’t until the 1960s that practitioners began to experiment with ibogaine’s psychedelic components to treat a wide range of mental health and addiction issues.

    Universal Ibogaine trades on the TSX Venture Exchange and the objective of the OIB joint venture is to build out an ibogaine center detox clinic. In “Osoyoos Indian Band eyes cutting-edge drug treatment centre,” author Joe Fries details this novel partnership. The opioid crisis claimed a shocking 2,224 lives in B.C. in 2021. Both entities feel ibogaine can play a critical role in treating opioid addiction, serving as a viable alternative to the more standard opioid substitution therapies.

  • Psychedelic Interest Booms

    Despite global COVID shutdowns and declines in medical research funding not related to the pandemic, interest in psychedelic use to treat addictions and other psychological issues is booming.   

    The rise in popularity is happening in the business sector and beyond. While specific industries suffered economic blows due to COVID, notable psychedelic companies either went public or secured millions in funding. Currently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is conducting clinical trials involving psychedelic substances such as ibogaine, ketamine, and psilocybin. At the moment, ibogaine, a natural extract used in various countries to treat addiction, is a Schedule 1 drug and not approved for medical use in the United States.

    There may not be a more optimal time to explore the therapeutic power of ibogaine. Over 15 million Americans suffer from depression, and some forms of depression have proven resistant to treatment. Millions suffer from substance addiction and co-occurring disorders.

  • Scientists Develop Synthetic Form of Ibogaine

    University of California, Davis researchers have created a non-hallucinogenic version of ibogaine. The new substance could prove just as effective as the psychedelic original used to treat addiction and psychological illnesses such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

    David Olson, an assistant professor of chemistry at UC Davis, detailed the discovery in the December 2020 issue of Nature.   

    In the study, a series of rodent experiments showed that mice decreased their alcohol consumption and experienced a delayed opiate relapse when given the non-hallucinogenic Tabernanthalog (TBG). The synthetic version is water-soluble and has fewer adverse effects than ibogaine. Olson says he’s optimistic that TBG can treat addiction and many illnesses related to addiction, such as depression and anxiety.

  • Psychedelic Drug Attracts Corporate Attention

    n the United States, over 2 million Americans suffered from opioid addiction in 2018. With relapse rates of traditional rehabilitative models averaging at about 50%, companies have positioned themselves within the psychedelic drug sector to bring a different therapeutic approach.

    Companies such as ATAI Sciences and DemeRx are investigating ibogaine, a natural extract found in western Central Africa that has proven effective in reducing opioid withdrawal symptoms and cravings. Researchers also found that the same substance lessens depression that accompanies addiction. Despite the positive effects, ibogaine continues to be classified as a Schedule 1 drug not allowed for medical use in the United States. Regardless of the status, researchers continue to study precisely how ibogaine affects the brain and delivers relief to those suffering from addiction. It is believed that ibogaine affects neurotransmitter systems, including serotonin, NMDA, and opioid receptors.

  • Ibogaine Attracts Addiction Research

    Researchers continue to examine the therapeutic properties of ibogaine as it proves effective in addiction rehabilitation. Countries such as New Zealand, Brazil, and South Africa allow it for medical use. In the United States, ibogaine is a Schedule 1 substance, which means it is not approved for medical use. 

    Ibogaine is an indole alkaloid produced by the Taberna iboga shrub native to West Africa. Traditionally, consumers used the substance to reduce fever, boost sexual arousal, and improve health. Specifically, it has been found to bring on a psychedelic experience in larger doses, while decreasing opioid withdrawal symptoms and disrupting cravings. Researchers have also shown it to be effective in combatting depression and alcohol abuse. Like with all drugs, care must be exercised when using ibogaine. It has been found to potentially cause paralysis, heart or pulmonary failure, and seizures in rare cases.

  • The Promise of Ibogaine

    Traditional rehabilitative models are failing to deliver results to those trying to beat chronic drug abuse. Some are hailing the increasing popular extract ibogaine for its suppressive effects on withdrawal symptoms and ultimately, addiction.

    Ibogaine, derived from a central west African shrub, is a psychedelic drug that has proven effective in treating alcohol, heroin, and opioid addiction in treatment centers worldwide. Scientists continue to study ibogaine to unlock its therapeutic power. One theory researchers have for ibogaine’s effectiveness is that it may increase brain neuron growth and plasticity, which is the brain’s ability to remodel itself. While human clinical trials are underway and pharmaceutical companies and government agencies worldwide continue to investigate ibogaine’s seemingly anti-addiction properties, some U.S. military veterans have found relief using the psychedelic drug.

    Heroin and cocaine addiction is not only physically and psychologically harmful to the addict; the impact on family members, friends, and employment is equally destructive. Ibogaine, an indole alkaloid from the West African shrub, Tabernanthe iboga, has proven effective in treating a wide range of addictions. It is part of a larger alternative drug rehabilitation movement, and a fascinating study calling on 191 volunteers details its effectiveness. 

    Researchers concluded in “Ibogaine Detoxification Transitions Opioid and Cocaine Abusers Between Dependence and Abstinence: Clinical Observations and Treatment Outcomes” that ibogaine therapy administered under treatment professionals in safe doses diminishes the withdrawal symptoms from opioids and reduces drug cravings. This is excellent news not only for heroin rehabilitation but also for fentanyl detox, among others. Ibogaine treatment in Mexico has been developing rapidly and the study’s authors conclude that product development of single dose ibogaine holds great promise moving forward.

  • Ibogaine for Opioid Withdrawal

    Ibogaine as a holistic approach to drug rehabilitation has been gaining popularity in certain countries around the world. In recent years Ibogaine treatment centers in Mexico and Canada have been in high demand with patients from the United States. No surprise given the impressive success rate of Ibogaine. Even a few states in the US have started to consider legalizing its controlled usage. 

    The administration of Ibogaine outside of a clinical setting is strongly discouraged as cardiac issues may arise. Those who consider purchasing ibogaine and self-administering are taking a risk that is greatly reduced when administered by professionals in a well-equipped facility.

  • The Multibillion-Dollar Opioid Crisis Has a Plant Medicine Solution

    In “The Multibillion-Dollar Opioid Crisis Has a Plant Medicine Solution,” it’s easy to forget that author Omri Wallach isn’t referring to the US, and it’s raging opioid crisis. Rather, Wallach is commenting on Canada, a country that for most around the world has a reputation for stability and order. But that Canadian calmness is no match for opioid addiction, which has positioned alternative drug rehabilitation front and center in this northern country. 

    Taking a chapter out of ibogaine treatment in Mexico and the great strides this psychedelic substance has made with opioid, methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin rehabilitation, Wallach details some novel moves the Canadian private sector is taking to be an eventual global example of the application of ibogaine as a verifiable treatment. The most promising news, however, is not that ibogaine is finally being considered as one of the premier alternative drug rehabilitation psychedelics. Rather, the Canadian government is also coming along to the idea that making a dent in curbing a death toll that took 4,460 Canadian lives in 2018 can be achieved with alternatives to the norm.

  • Could ibogaine offer a revolutionary long-term solution to addiction?

    The United States and many other countries worldwide have been completely ravaged by the opioid crisis. While the World Health Organization reports that roughly 3.3 million people die yearly from alcohol addiction, a staggering 31 million people suffer from substance use disorders. And the root cause of these disorders are psychological and emotional in nature. Deep-seated traumas are common with not only opioid addiction, but heroin addiction, methamphetamine, and cocaine, among others. Fentanyl is a powerful, synthetic opioid and hundreds of millions are spent each year in costly fentanyl detox. 

    As this informative article, “Could ibogaine offer a revolutionary long-term solution to addiction?” from HealthEuropa, details, researchers are beginning to understand better how alternative drug rehabilitation, especially with ibogaine is different, and in many cases superior to what many have been engaged in up to now. Ibogaine was (and still is) used in religious Bwiti ceremonies by the Punu and Mitsogo people in Gabon and Cameroon. It takes the user on a journey, confronting some of their most painful and regrettable decisions, and pinpoints the root causes of said decisions. The journey is far from enjoyable, but valuable and leaving the user in many cases not seeking to self-medicate afterward.

  • Iboga in 2020: Why Now Is The Time To Embrace Oneirogenics

    Heroin rehabilitation, weening yourself off cocaine, opioid addiction, these are heavy issues that most societies have had a lot of experience with. The problem – said experience has not resulted in great treatment. For numerous reasons, most treatment for drug addiction rests on the use of pharmeceutical drugs and treating patients in a very hierarchical fashion. Levels of addiction are defined, and the correspinding cocktail of drugs is subsequently assigned. 

    The results have not been great, and as “Iboga in 2020: Why Now Is The Time To Embrace Oneirogenics” rightly points out – oneirogenics is poised for a big breakthrough moving forward. An oneirogneic state is achieved via high-doses of psychedelic substances such as ibogaine. Ibogaine treatment in Mexico for folks with a range of additions has been lauded as a revolutionary step forward, and ibogaine has proved successful in taking patients back through their formative years and painful moments that have resulted in a current addiction. By confronting the difficult, ibogaine hits at the root of the addiction or psychiatric state, thus giving treatment practitioners much more to work with than simply states of mind with little context.

  • How Ibogaine Can Help with the Opioid Crisis

    Juliana was like many other addicts. Heroin rehabilitation was part of a never-ending cycle of breaking her addiction, only to see it return weeks or months later. She had heard of ibogaine treatment in Mexico and throughout Latin America and Europe but naturally had her doubts. It wasn’t until her mother and a close friend’s support led her to a clinic where she received ibogaine treatment for the first time. 

    Adaam James Levin-Areddy takes us through Juliana’s journey in “How Ibogaine Can Help with the Opioid Crisis,” eventually leading us to the future of ibogaine treatment strategies for everything from heroin to fentanyl detox. While there have not been any double-blind, randomized clinical trials with ibogaine yet, a vast majority of those that have been surveyed, post-treatment, have experienced relapses at a lower frequency. However, convincing pharmaceutical companies to jump on board without a clinical trial will certainly be a challenge. But if Juliana’s story is any indication of the efficacy of this naturally occurring substance, people should and will continue to pay attention.

  • Can a Shrub in Gabon Cure Addiction?

    Treating drug addiction for many practitioners is a long, slow haul. Part of the problem is all addicts are not the same. At the core of every addiction is a pathology, and said pathology naturally differs among individuals. Dr. Deborah Mash is a professor of neurology and pharmacology. She has been working with ibogaine at the Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami since 1992. That is nearly 30 years, an impressive amount of time to be working on alternative drug rehabilitation. In “Can a Shrub in Gabon Cure Addiction?,” while the title is provocative, Dr. Mash takes us through the facts, myths, and barriers ibogaine needs to overcome in the US to be legally administered with everything from fentanyl detox to other common opioids.

    In Dr. Mash’s experience, she has witnessed up to 90% effectiveness in ibogaine treatment, especially as it relates to blocking the signs and symptoms of withdrawal. Yet, pharmaceutical companies are risk-averse when it comes to clinical trials, and without a clinical trial, FDA approval is impossible. Dr. Mash had success with St. Kitts and Nevis’s government in the West Indies, and we already know of the exceptional track record of ibogaine treatment in Mexico. Heroin rehabilitation is not an easy step, but it is much more challenging when you limit the options. Dr. Mash continues her fight to place ibogaine front and center.

  • hallucinogenic root takes davos stage as addiction fighter

    Every year some of the world’s most influential actors put their day-to-day business to the side and join colleagues in Davos, a mountain resort in the eastern Alps region of Switzerland. A picturesque setting, with plenty of enjoyable touristic activities, these folks however do not arrive to play. Rather, they’ve come together to attend the World Economic Forum (WEF), a meeting with a lofty mission – to improve the state of the world by engaging academic, political, and business leader to shape regional, global, and industry agendas. 

    The 2020 get-together was pre-pandemic, so Zoom was not the preferred communication medium. This was fortunate for Atai Life Sciences AG, a company experimenting with alternative drug rehabilitation. Backed by billionaire investor Peter Thiel, the company had quite possibly their most valued, captive audience to date, and one that most presumed could care less about the subject matter. Yet, the reception was incredible. Ibogaine and other psychedelics have proven their effectiveness, and getting that message out is now the current challenge. Eyk Henning explains in “A Hallucinogenic Root Is Pitched to Davos Set as Treatment for Opioid Addiction” how opioid and heroin rehabilitation, among others, are being completely re-thought with ibogaine. 

    Ibogaine treatment in Mexico has been advancing rapidly, especially in the area of fentanyl detox. Having world leaders with the clout and cache behind this movement could very well be a record breakthrough.

  • Veteran Navy SEAL Advocates for Psychedelic Assisted Therapy

    Serving one’s country is a noble undertaking. Ex-Navy SEAL Marcus Capone took great pride in his time deployed abroad, but neither he nor his family could have prepared for the battle that awaited upon his return, a battle far more grueling and one that nearly ended his life.

    In this moving interview with Psychedelic Times, Marcus and his wife Amber detail the sub-concussive and concussive impact on Marcus’ brain due to decades of contact sports and SEAL operations. Marcus’ story is harrowing while simultaneously uplighting. His family has traversed a difficult path, but Amber’s unwavering support and determination to find a treatment for Marcus were present throughout.

    Thanks to psychedelic-assisted therapy, specifically involving Ibogaine and 5-MeO-DMT, Marcus has finally been able to put years of brain clinic treatments to rest. The couple is passionate about sharing their experience and formed a non-profit – Veterans Exploring Treatment Solutions (VETS). There is a bright light at the end of the tunnel, but that tunnel can be long and arduous if combined with inadequate treatment.

  • Learn more iboga

    Heroin and opioid addiction is absolutely debilitating. There are few substances harder to rehabilitate from, yet prescription opiates (OxyContin, Percocet, Vicodin, etc.) are everpresent and making eventual heroin rehabilitation an impossible proposition. “Drug Addicts Aren’t the Only Ones Recovering: Iboga Also Found to Cure Depression, Anxiety, and PTSD” is an article that sheds light on ibogaine, with a particular emphasis on the differences of this alternative drug rehabilitation and some of the more common, well-known treatments with so-so track-records. 

    The article details that with ibogaine treatment, be it ibogaine treatment in Mexico or anywhere for that matter, the user’s life is presented on a series of 3-dimensional screens. Said user is transported to a familiar place, but one that is confrontational by nature. If someone is engaged in fentanyl detox, for example, simply applying a band-aid for the pain via conventional, pharmaceutical medication will never address the root problem. This might be the less aggressive stance to take, but ibogaine is geared at long-term recovery, not band-aid-esque interventions.

  • What Is the Success Rate for Ibogaine?

    Ibogaine has proven effective in addressing addiction over several substances. Yet, like any drug, ibogaine alone without the corresponding medical attention and structured rehabilitation program is unlikely to result in long-term abstinence. “What Is the Success Rate for Ibogaine” details a host of positive research as to the effectiveness of ibogaine in the larger drug rehabilitation arena. Compared to Suboxone, a popular pharmaceutical treatment for opioid addiction, one study revealed that those who took ibogaine resulted in a 20 to 50% rate of abstinence compared to 8.6% with Suboxone (at a one-year follow-up point).

    The use of ibogaine for not only opioid addiction but methamphetamine as well as heroin addiction has been steadily growing. Ibogaine treatment in Mexico is well established and while the drug itself can cause short-term side effects, its ability to “interrupt” the addiction process and in some cases completely re-wire the brain to return itself to a pre-addiction state is extremely promising. The key to long-term success, however, rests as previously mentioned in adherence to a rehabilitation program and consistent follow-up.

  • A Psychology Major’s Experience With Addiction and Ibogaine Treatment

    Jason had battled addiction since early in life. But from 17 to 21, heroin had taken over. Like Fentanyl detox, heroin detox is difficult, often resulting in bouts of “dope sickness” that are unbearable for many. Author April Smith tells Jason’s story in “A Psychology Major’s Experience With Addiction and Ibogaine Treatment.” It wasn’t until his girlfriend (also a heroin addict at the time) traveled to Costa Rica, took ibogaine, and returned a completely different person that Jason considered alternative drug rehabilitation.

    Jason’s story is not unlike countless others who have gone through conventional heroin rehabilitation only to relapse a short time after. Jason transformed into such an advocate for ibogaine that he became involved in ibogaine treatment in Mexico, helping others through the process. The community nature of ibogaine treatment was especially powerful for Jason and others, Smith reports. Community has long been known to provide struggling addicts a sense of meaning and purpose, and Jason is a steadfast proponent of ibogaine treatment under the watchful eye of professionals in group settings.

  • What is ibogaine?

    Derived naturally from plant sources, mainly the Apocynaceae family known as Iboga, Ibogaine is a psychoactive substance used in treating opiate addictions such as heroin & fentanyl. Ibogaine also possesses other neurological and psychological benefits and has been used by traditional communities for centuries. 

    Ibogaine is gaining in popularity as an effective alternative to traditional drug rehabilitation for the treatment of numerous addictions. Ibogaine treatment in Mexico is especially popular among US citizens. Studies from Mexico and New Zealand have reported success rates between 20% and 50% with those treated abstaining from their primary addiction for at least 12 months.

  • Opioid addicts seek alternative treatment in Mexico

    Mexico is fast becoming a hot alternative drug rehabilitation destination. Ibogaine treatment in Mexico has received tremendous positive reviews for having the potential to treat years of addiction with only a single dose. Fentanyl and heroin have notorious failure rates due to extreme withdrawal symptoms. Ibogaine offers rapid detox with mild withdrawals.

    Ibogaine treatment focuses on reducing withdrawal symptoms, thereby kickstarting the early recovery cycle. Ibogaine is a psychoactive alkaloid derived from the Iboga root found in West Africa. Pure ibogaine powder is encapsulated and administered under medical supervision for the detox of opiates such as heroin and Fentanyl. It is also used for the treatment of numerous other addictions. 

    This treatment should not be considered a miracle cure as aftercare and the will to succeed are still essential for success. It’s not recommended for people with heart problems or with severe pre-existing conditions.
