Ibogaine Treatment for Addiction
Treatment for addiction starts with Skype consultations, recommendations for you and a regime of supplementation beforehand. Upon arrival we will meet you, get you settled and stabilized. You’ll visit our physician for a medical review and any prescription required of appropriate medications for a comfortable stay.
Only after we spend a few days relaxing and getting comfortable do we start working with the medicines. How we proceed from there varies on you, your health and the substance we’re working with. There is no cookie cutter protocol and so treatment varies from client to client.
Normally it is done slowly and incrementally over days with smaller amounts of Ibogaine before moving forward to a large dose or continued lower doses. You are coached along and all concerns are covered. We’re there for you 24-7 to see you through this amazing experience of a lifetime.
What Ibogaine Isn’t
It can seem appealing to a drug user to take one drug to get off another and in most cases this works for a period of time ranging from weeks to months.
It’s important to understand though, that Ibogaine is not a silver bullet against addiction; there is no such thing. Nor is it a party drug that’s way cool to trip out while getting some healing in. Successful addiction treatment begins with you.
Ibogaine is a very powerful entheogen (“generating the divine within”), a chemical substance used in a religious, shamanic, or spiritual context, that often induces psychological and/or physiological changes. Ibogaine sparks intense introspection and interrupts addiction, propelling you well on your way to a new lifestyle. If you’re ready.
The effectiveness of an Ibogaine addiction treatment has a lot to do with your intent. What is your motivation for taking this therapy? Do you have a clear picture of what your success looks like? Are you quitting for you? Are you done yet?
How open are you to receiving the medicine? Can you give up control to what is said to be the sentient spirits of the plants? Can you face yourself in all your glorious, and not-so-glorious self? Are you ready to dig a little deeper? Clear some stuff up? Find the real you?
And the collateral damage is weighed in as well – physical, financial, spiritual and such. Addiction takes its toll and it’s different for everyone. It all has to be brought to the table and sorted out. We’ll help you with that.
That’s part of Inner Realms’ initial consultation work we do with you for the best addiction treatment outcome. We help our clients solidify their motivations and then link those with a strategic combination of recovery modalities that best fits and lead on to a whole new way of being.
We make your Ibogaine treatment for addiction experience as safe, effective and graceful as possible. We promise.
In preparation for this transcendent treatment, we encourage you to invest the time in yourself for the powerful experience you’re about to undertake. To help with this, we’ve provided you with the following top 10 list of just how to do that:
Take the time to get out in nature and walk, meditate, write, practice yoga and generally be good to yourself in preparation for an experience of a lifetime. We will encourage you to do this during your stay and recommend maintaining that lifestyle and then adapting it as it works for you afterward.
To help you in your healing, a supplement list will be discussed and you will be advised of what to take.
To make sure you are in the best physical state to work with the plant medicines, we’ll provide a list of various tests we’ll need from the doctor and the ensuing lab work results.
Please discuss with us any medications or drugs you have taken, even the ones you may have forgotten on the application.
Hydration is extremely important before, during and after treatment. Drinks that contain electrolytes (coconut water) are helpful if consumed before arrival and they will be available during treatment.
Do eliminate alcohol at least 10 days before treatment.
A diet of whole grains, fish, chicken, fruits and vegetables is also recommended. Avoid fatty, fried and over-processed foods, refined sugars and carbohydrates.
Packing for up to 14 days is advised as treatment is based on the individual’s needs and clients will not be released until they are ready.
Bringing lots of loose comfortable clothing is optimal, packing lightly but including comfortable clothing, sweater, warm socks, hat, etc. An eye mask will be available for your use but if you prefer to bring your own you are encouraged to do so.

What to expect
How Safe is Ibogaine
This is a comman and valid concern often shared with us and this is an exceptional answer from expert Clare S. Wilkins, founder of Pangea Biomedics.
During Ibogaine Treatment
Your Ibogaine experience can generally be broken down into 3 different phases:
Phase 1: Ibogaine is setting up in your body. Your room is made comfortable by blackening the windows, lightning candles, playing meditative music, refreshing your bed, making comfort and a quiet space.
Phase 2: This is what’s referred to as the peak time. Most clients will experience oneiric, dream-like visions. These will be like pictures and/or moving-film views of certain aspects of of their life which might be a bit jumbled while the medicine creates new neural pathways.
This is when providers are sitting with the clients, ensuring the overall comfort and safety of the client and to assist with the journey, if need be.
With higher dose Ibogaine protocols, one of our registered nurses are there to take vitals during the pertinent stages.
Phase 3: The experience has subsided and clients may enter a reflective twilight. Time will be unreal – stretched and contracted – as the re-routing of the pathways solidifies in the brain.
The environment on these days and those after are of meditative reflection, where the electronic distractions of TV, phones, etc., are kept to an absolute minimum.
This is the time to allow the medicine to work through the body, stacking as each day goes and thus working it’s powers to interrupt your current addiction.
What to expect afterward
Once the initial part of the session is over, a long period of mental processing usually takes place. This is usually quite exhausting but important and necessary.
There will be what is refereed to as “gray days” after your Ibogaine experience and this is a common side effect for people fighting addiction. Your Iboga treatment can leave the body feeling sore, depressed and sad.
Some clients have difficulty with this. Sleep can be very difficult and interrupted, where it seems that getting any asleep is impossible. Feeling a little restless is part of the process.
We’ll help you honor the process while remembering that this too shall pass. We have lots of supplements, good food and we’ll get you out for some light physical exercise in the natural beauty that is BC. You’ll be well looked after and have an arsenal of tools like aftercare practices and resources to carry on with the process once you leave.
So you can be as informed as possible, we are dedicated to compiling an ongoing list of resources and info. Topics include drug addiction detox, trauma, plant medicines, rehabs, recovery, aftercare, and integration. Please feel free to make suggestions for further learning for us all.
