Revisioning the Psychodynamics of Opiate Addiction Through the Lenses of Jungian Depth and Fourth Wave Psychologies

Adrian Auler, MA

The efficacy of ibogaine in treating addiction – to opiates, in particular – seems to be significantly greater than that of extant treatment modalities. Why? I propose a model of addiction, based on Jungian depth psychology and elaborated with Fourth Wave psychologies, which may offer an understanding of the phenomenological experience of ibogaine treatment by addicts: it is a multivalent key to a psychospiritual and emotional disorder of multidimensional human beings.
