As one of the most addictive drugs that is by far the worst to come off of, heroin is used by thousands of people every day and is responsible for trapping hundreds of thousands of people in its dark clutches of addiction. The drug provides a mellow “downer” effect that quickly offers a state of euphoria because of the chemical changes it produces in the pleasure centers of the brain.
While producing this state of euphoric bliss heroin quickly traps users into addiction. More of the drug is needed each time a user wants to come back up and users must increase frequency and the amount of heroin ingested if they want to keep their high. Heroin also is extremely physically addicting and without it addicts find themselves physically very sick and unable to function without the drug.
Users of heroin and other opiates often withdraw from family and friends while blaming them for not wanting to spend time with them. More often than not heroin addicts steal or borrow money from loved ones and become defensive when questioned about it. Other signs of heroin abuse are indicated by:
Physical symptoms of heroin use include:
In cases where addiction is more extreme heroin addicts will become violently ill without the drug. Any normal activities of life become impossible. Without the drug heavy addicts will succumb to heavy sweats, vomiting, shakes, and an extremely decreased immune system that eventually will shut down vital organ function resulting in overdose and death.
Anyone who is addicted to heroin or has a loved one whose life the drug has taken over knows the pain and suffering that this addiction brings. As one of the hardest drugs to quit, heroin is one of the most dangerous and most detrimental. Many find that traditional treatments do little to help cure addiction to heroin and really just replace one addiction with another. Fortunately, Ibogaine helps to treat heroin addiction at a deep psychological level and offers up to an 80% success rate for addicts to live addiction free.
Methadone is the traditional treatment that is used to get people off heroin, but unfortunately methadone is extremely addictive as well and addicts often end up becoming just as addicted to this as they were heroin. Simply replacing one addiction with another does nothing to get to the root of the problem that led addicts to their addiction in the first place and often leaves patients that are trying to recover in the same place they started.
Ibogaine works as a psycho-spiritual tool to help patients get to the root of their addiction by looking deeply at their past to understand why they have chosen heroin or other opiates in the first place. Those that end up becoming addicts are usually victims of deep emotional problems. Heroin provides an escape from these wounds, emotional scars, and negative memories that are often very hard to let go of.
Ibogaine takes the patient on a deep introspective psychological journey that helps them uncover what has led to their addiction, process it, and let it go for good. Ibogaine helps to reset the neurotransmitters in one’s brain and helps one to see things an entirely different way. Through the treatment of Ibogaine one can identify old wounds and forgive others for the pain they have caused. Most importantly the treatment will help the patient forgive themselves and move into a new life that is full of hope and possibility.
Ibogaine is administered on the second day of withdrawal and is broken down into two separate phases. The first phase is considered the visionary stage of the treatment and usually lasts between 4-6 hours. It is during this intense period that patients come face to face with that which has been buried deep within for years. In an altered state of dream-like consciousness, patients take a journey through their lives and uncover past memories and circumstances.
The second stage of Ibogaine is known as the introspective phase of the treatment. This part of Ibogaine treatment is used for reflection of the traumas and memories that were uncovered in the first phase. This is a deeply introspective psychological journey that helps patients forgive others that caused them pain in the past. Most importantly, Ibogaine helps patients forgive themselves for actions they have done that they have not yet forgiven themselves for.
These two phases of treatment are usually completed in about 36-48 hours and provide patients with a life free from both physical and psychological addiction. Ibogaine allows for complete transformation on a very deep psychological level and leaves patients full of hope for a future that is bright and overflowing with opportunity. For a future of hope without heroin, Ibogaine offers an excellent form of alternative therapy to help you take the first step towards a beautiful new life.
