Ibogaine Treatment for Opiate Addiction

Ibogaine Treatment for Opiate Addiction

Ibogaine Treatment for Opiate Addiction, a door of opportunity to a better life!

Opiate use in the United States has increased dramatically in recent years, surging a staggering 63% between 2002 and 2013 alone, according to an analysis of the data conducted by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration.

While opiate use remained highest among low-income males between the ages of 18 and 25, it doubled among women during that 11-year period and more than doubled among non-Hispanic whites.

Meanwhile, the groups’ analysis found that the rate of opiate-related overdose deaths nearly quadrupled. The need for a medically proven solution to ending opiate addiction, in other words, has never been more urgent.

Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center’s medical ibogaine detox treatment is specifically designed to address opiate addiction. The only facility that offers a full on-site medical staff; pre-treatment screening; real-time medical monitoring during treatment; and comprehensive pre-care and aftercare programs; Crossroads takes a truly holistic approach to the healing and recovery process.

The discovery that ibogaine could be used to end addiction was actually made by an opiate user. In 1962, 19-year-old Howard Lots of noticed that after taking a single dose of ibogaine, not only did he no longer crave opiate, he also didn’t experience any withdrawal symptoms.

Nearly 40 years later, Lots of was among a group of researchers who conducted an open-label study of 33 opiate addicts treated with ibogaine. Participants in the study, which was published in the American Journal on Addictions, reported that their withdrawal symptoms started to abate within just one to three hours. Within 34 hours of ibogaine administration, all 33 participants said their withdrawal symptoms had been eradicated completely.

Eliminating cravings and withdrawal symptoms is not the full solution to ending opiate addiction, of course. But when paired with the right pre-care and aftercare recovery program, Crossroads’ ibogaine detox treatment can help patients end their addiction for good.
