At the Ibogaine Institute we use plant medicines to help clean your system of opiates, but also to help you to see yourself: your habits, your pains, wounds, traumas, and the roots and cause of your addictions or depression, in such a powerful and clear way. Our unique approach walks you through your work to have deeply entrenched patterns fall away to be replaced with new habits and the discipline to resolve future cravings, create supportive relationships, resolve past wreckage, and get back to building the life you dream about.
Many heroin users turn to suboxone to get off dope. But at the Ibogaine Institute, we treat patients with Ibogaine, a one time treatment with zero addictive properties. Here are some facts about suboxone to consider:
Suboxone was meant to be a short term detox medication, but doctor’s don’t tell you that. Instead, they overprescribe it and within weeks, patients are addicted.
It makes you feel slow and dull.
It has a long half life. It lingers in your system for about three days when you stop taking it, but on the fourth day, the withdrawal symptoms set in, hard.
The withdrawal can last for weeks. Some people say it takes a full year to feel like they are back to normal after going off of the drug.
Withdrawal symptoms include restless leg syndrome, depression, confusion, throwing up, sweating, diarrhea, and sleeplessness.
Suboxone is a $1.5 billion market in the US, according to National Pain Report news site. It’s a huge money maker for pharmaceutical companies, and doctors, some of whom charge cash for prescriptions and don’t do proper evaluations or therapies with their patients. The longer a patient stays hooked on suboxone, the more money pharmaceutical companies and doctors make.
Replacing heroin with suboxone is simply replacing one opioid with another. Although suboxone doesn’t get you high, it’s still a drug, and it can turn into a long-term addiction, just like heroin.
Over 20,000 physicians in the U.S. are certified to prescribe suboxone, according to the National Pain Report, but many who prescribe it have no training in working with addiction.
Last year patients filled about 9 million prescriptions for Suboxone or buprenorphine products.
