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.

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.
