"Being able to put together the thoughts that they’ve had, why they’ve relapsed before. I think that’s what Ibogaine really shows you. Our errors in our life. It brings out of us what’s inside of us. It’s not showing us the path to go, it’s more showing us the mistakes that we’ve made."
"I couldn’t even imagine the amount of warmth and comfort level I felt from top to bottom. It’s really amazing what they do here. It’s a life changing moment. I used the analogy of getting a new pair of glasses. How everything in the world looks different. It’s clear and you see everything you’ve been missing for so long when you can’t see properly."
"The staff on hand is unbelievable. They care, they get you going. You learn techniques for coping. Super important. You’ve got to have a life when you get home, and they try to prepare you for that as much as possible. So I really can’t say enough about it. I had a great experience. I think anybody out there who is going through the epidemic of opiates, there is a way to get through it. And not only get through it. But get through it where you won’t crave afterwards."
"I was addicted to opiates for eleven years, and I could never get off of them. Never stay off of them, and the withdrawals were too hard for me. So I read about Ibogaine, and I cam here and took it. It was the most amazing experience. I had hardly any withdrawals, and I was very comfortable. The staff is amazing. Everybody is so friendly. You feel like it’s a family here."
"I feel great from the treatment. I did the treatments a little over about 2 and a half weeks ago, and I feel fully recovered. I’m actually quite shocked at how recovered I am. I have no cravings for the first time in many many years. So I don’t have to take stabilizers, like suboxone, to cover those cravings. And I feel much happier as a person."
"It was absolutely amazing. From the second they picked me up I felt like I was just a friend. I wasn’t treated like a patient or an addict or anything like that. The Ibogaine itself was really helpful. I just dosed yesterday. Today is the next day, and there could be all of the drugs in the world on this table right here, and I don’t want them anymore. It’s the most miraculous thing ever. I don’t know how it works, but I’m glad it does."
"I felt like I was reborn. I felt like a new person. I felt that my way I expressed it to people was that I was born, I was reborn at my age. Totally clear head, totally brand new. Just totally…it’s insane what it does. It’s really, it’s a miracle when you do the treatment and you come out of it. You know, the first thing I think is miracle."
"It just made me be honest with myself. Any other time, I didn’t want to admit character defaults. And I didn’t want to take blame for my triggers, the reasons why I use. Like if I went and got a tooth pulled, it’s ok to take the medicine. Not it’s not. It’s just going to lead me down that path again. That’s actually something that I had to deal with a couple of weeks ago. It’s just been a positive mental awareness about myself. Now I’m able to deal with things and not shame myself for them."
"We’ve been talking about our pasts here, me and the other patients, clients, and I used to get physical responses, just even talking about drugs. I would get rapid heartbeat, get a little nauseous, feel like I had to go to the bathroom or something, and now I just don’t. It just doesn’t even appeal to me. I’ve spent too much time doing that. I don’t want to stab myself with needles anymore. Making myself bleed everyday. I forgive myself, the past is the pas. But in the future, this is a beautiful vessel, it’s an amazing microcosm, I have to take care of it."
