A testimonial from Reanna

A testimonial from Reanna

Written by: Angela

Reanna was with us recently, and was our longest-staying, most difficult client to-date. We gave her Ibogaine daily for a total of 5 1/2 weeks but in the end, it was very rewarding. She’s so happy waking up every day not using, which is unbelievable to her… And to us. She started injecting heroin at 18 years of age and is still alive to tell the tale at 41. She knew she was running out of time…

… but let’s let her tell it:

“At 41 years old after being addicted to opiates for 24 years I found myself at a crossroads. I was at the end of my rope. I felt there was no way out, my body was now giving out on me and I knew I did not have much time left. My habit was up to 2 grams a day.”

“I then came across Ibogaine, which I never of heard about before. Although I’ve been in college for addiction, nothing about ibogaine was ever mentioned for drug dependency. This blew my mind.”

“I was very sceptical about ibogaine as I had tried most traditional methods to quit and nothing ever stuck, so believed this might not work for me either. I was so petrified of withdrawals, as they would come every three to four hours. At that point I was crying out, looking for a way out, pleading for my life back.”

“I then found out about Inner Realms, contacted Garyth and then contacted many other ibogaine practitioners.” (and there’s more!)

Reanna went directly from us to an aftercare in the states. She’s been there a few months now and is doing great.

We love our job!!

My experience during my Ibogaine treatment was exceptional and well coordinated. I was made to feel extremely comfortable so my transition into the introspective world of Ibogaine was smooth. Any question was answered and every need was met with compassion and love.

My psycho spiritual and addiction healing journey was worth every penny since I no longer crave like I used to, with a black hole to feed every single day. Freedom is something everybody needs from their demons and this was the catalyst in my case.

InnerRealms facilitated a great transformation in my life. When I was at my very worst, they helped me turn my life around.

With the help of Garyth’s knowledge of the medicine and life time of experience, along with Blair’s incredible ability to relate to others in a kind and nurturing way, I was able to change internally, on a deep level.

Opiates had been a problem for me my entire adult life. From age 19 to age 37, on and off for 18 years, but mainly on. I had never been clean for longer than 12 months. I had tried many different methods of quitting from going cold turkey on my own, detox, methadone, 12 steps, moving to different cities and even Rapid Opiate Detox surgery

I came to Inner Realms with an addiction to grams of pure heroin a day habit for many years. I was nervous at first but right from the second I arrived, I knew I was in great hands. I was even given medication right away so I could stay comfortable the whole time.

Garyth and Blair are both extremely knowledgeable and caring, and they saved my life.

When I found out about ibogaine and the use of it became very urgent for me to get into center as soon as possible.

I talked to 2 other ibogaine providers before Garyth. None of them felt my urgency as much as he did.

And I was on the flight to Vancouver from New York with a heavy and obsessive heroin addiction.

When I first decided to seek Ibogaine treatment, a friend of mine who had been through treatment herself had just 3 words for me: “Get to Garyth.”

She told me that he was really the best provider around, and my experience in treatment showed me the value of her advice.

Inner Realms is a small, client-centric Ibogaine center run by Garyth and Blair. Over the course of several weeks, they weaned me slowly off a 10+ year methadone addiction and provided the kindest, most loving care and treatment.

They were attentive to my every physical, spiritual, psychosocial and emotional need, and made me feel both safe and welcome at Inner Realms.
