The Ibogaine Treatment
Ibogaine is an alkaloid found in the plant Tabernathe Iboga. It has been used traditionally in the context of Bwiti and Pygmy initiatory rites and ceremonies. Often classified as an oneirogen for its ability to create a waking dream like state, followed by a period of deep introspection. Recently ibogaine has been receiving attention due to its addiction-interrupting, anti addictive properties. Research and application has led to refined modalities and protocols in using this tool, demonstrating that ibogaine profoundly mitigates withdrawal symptoms and post treatment cravings. Ibogaine has been shown to give individuals undergoing this form of treatment a "window of opportunity". One can look into the deeper issues that resulted in addiction and find resolution, creating the changes necessary to maintain a dependency free life. For this reason Ibogaine has often been likened to hitting the "reset button", or retuning the individual's mind to a pre-addictive state, thereby alleviating the physical and mental withdrawal symptoms associated with drug addiction.
Here at Root Passages we are dedicated to providing a safe, effective, and humane detox to those wishing to end the obsession of drug use in their lives.
