The partnership of Crossroads and Avante is a natural alliance of two complementary treatment centers resulting in the most well-designed ibogaine program in the world.
Located on two acres of white sand beachfront, Crossroads Treatment Center was carefully designed to be ideally suited for the introspective, emotional experience that holistic plant-based medicines offer. Patients will receive their treatment surrounded by meditative gardens, tropical turquoise waters, a private swimming pool and fresh ocean breezes. Each private guestroom is either oceanfront or poolfront. We chose Nassau specifically because of its proximity to the US, with multiple flights daily. We are also close to two hospitals, Princess Margaret and Doctors Hospital.
Crossroads is recognized as the universal leader in Ibogaine treatment, having treated thousands of people since 2000. Ibogaine, derived from the root of the African shrub Tabernanthe Iboga, has been used for centuries in medicinal healing and religious ceremonies, and used since 1962 for clinical detox. Patients seeking relief from opiate addiction find that ibogaine offers a detox without withdrawal symptoms, allowing our patients a real path to recovery. Ibogaine works to cleanse the body and liver of all toxins while re-balancing the neurochemical levels in the brain and increasing the levels of serotonin and dopamine. We also offer one-on-one recovery coaching and therapy, and pre- and post-treatment coaching so patients have the tools to continue their sobriety upon leaving Crossroads.
“I HAVE MYSELF BACK.”
I came to Crossroads because I was addicted to crack and heroin. My life was completely unmanageable. I was totally depressed and I was desperate to die. I’d tried everything else. My experience [with Ibogaine] was unreal. Ibogaine answered all of my questions as to why I use, as to who I am. It completely cleaned me. It was so powerful and unreal. It's given me a completely new outlook on myself, on what I'm doing here, on what my purpose is. I've never had an experience where I can look at myself and say, ‘Wow, I have a choice to do this or I have a choice to do that.’ When I'm using I feel like a slave, like I don't have a choice. Ibogaine taught me: ‘No, you do. You're strong enough.’ Grandfather Ibogaine, he's very serious. He tells you how it is.
If you have the opportunity to do this, you should. The Crossroads staff is so helpful. They showed me unconditional love. I came here so miserable, I didn't even want to do my laundry; I smelled bad. I came off the streets before I got here. The staff treated me so well, there was no judgement. I’m 22 and I have never felt this sense of security and safety and love. This is a radiant program. This is for people who want to change their life. I would recommend this to someone who is in pain. I am so grateful for this therapy. I have myself back.
