Ibogaine for Alcoholism Treatment
Ibogaine for alcoholism
Alcohol is the most commonly abused toxic substance in the world. Alcoholism often has a negative impact on the life of both addicts and their friends and family. Because it is a socially accepted substance, it is hard to recognise and respond to alcoholism. Alcohol addiction can also be passed on to the next generation. Very often those who were traumatised and abused by a drinking family member end up drinking themselves to cope with their past. This vicious circle is hard to break since alcohol is the most accessible and socially acceptable means to deal with stress.
Overcoming alcoholism is not easy, even for the determined. The physical and psychological dependence on alcohol can be powerful and the withdrawal symptoms difficult to deal with. Conventional treatment programmes such as AA are not effective, with success rates typically report as between 5-10% (higher rates are reported for those who continue to attend meetings).

Ibogaine for alcoholism?
Ibogaine treatment for alcoholism relieves the cravings for alcohol.* In addition, the “trip” aspect of ibogaine treatment enables the patient to access and work on the psycho-emotional aspects of their addiction. The patient is given the opportunity to recognise ahd realise the origins of their addiction. Both during and after treatment, you will have the opportunity for a deep self reflection, clearing away negative emotions and thought traps, and be able to forgive others for past events.
Making peace with the past and integrating your experiences during treatment will give you the freedom to move forward towards a happier future. We recommend practices such as Ho’oponopono, the Hawaiian forgiveness meditation, to be integrated into your post-treatment lifestyle.
Note: All patients should refrain from drinking alcohol for at least three days before ibogaine treatment, and for at least a week afterwards. Patients who are at risk for alcohol withdrawal syndrome need to be completely detoxed from alcohol dependency under medical supervision for five to seven days prior to treatment.
