About Ibogaine:
Ibogaine is an alkaloid derived from the root of the West African I​boga shrub and has been used for hundreds if not thousands of years in spiritual practices. Over the past several decades, Ibogaine is increasingly used as a treatment to stop opiate withdrawal. Ibogaine alleviates physical symptoms of opiate withdrawal by locking onto opiate receptors, and blocking feedback loops that reinforce dependency. Ibogaine can also induce a dream state in which unlearning old psychological connections and learning new associations are accelerated. Unlike methadone or suboxone (current primary treatments for opiate addiction), Ibogaine is non­addictive and does not need to be taken continually. Once Ibogaine treatment is complete, no further use is necessary and c​ravings are sometimes permanently eliminated.

Treatment includes:

  • 7 days of treatment and aftercare at a state­ of­ the­ art clinic and beachfront residence in Rosarito.
  • Comprehensive holistic screening in interdisciplinary clinic.
  • Assistance of compassionate​ staff physicians, nurses, therapists, and addiction coaches.
  • Cognitive assessment screening with follow­up brain training.
  • Aftercare for relapse prevention and support.


  • Ages between 20­-40.
  • Currently dependent on morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone, heroin, or other short­-acting prescription opiates.
  • Able to travel internationally with valid California or US State Identification or Passport.

Exclusion criteria:

  • Current suboxone or methadone use.
  • Current SSRI and other antidepressant use.
  • History of Moderate/severe traumatic brain injury.
