One of the biggest misconceptions when it comes to Ibogaine therapy is the idea; that somehow, treatment is a “push button” experience. Once treatment is complete, “I am cured, and I never have to worry about my past addiction again.” This thought process is nothing more than the construction of a significant expectation, followed by a deep resentment, which 9 out of 10 times, leads to a relapse worse than before. Once this occurs, then it becomes “Ibogaine’s fault for not working.”

If the person is completely honest with themselves, it has nothing to do with the Ibogaine treatment because it did what it was supposed to do. Better than any other detox treatment that exists on this planet.


Ibogaine does not undo ones thinking, behaviors, and beliefs. However, it gives you deep insight and a window of opportunity to do something to change the person you once were. Recovery is about action, and it’s about taking personal responsibility about your life choices that lead up to your treatment.


Well, let’s start with this. The same thought process that brought you to our ibogaine treatment center is not the thought process that will keep you clean and sober. When and if life shows up like it always does, and you have no healthy coping skills, sober support, or supportive guidance, your thoughts will get the best of you. One will always resort to a default mindset when in pain, and that is to use. Yes, to use.


As stated above, Ibogaine treatment gives you insight and a window to make a substantial change in your life. To change the thought process that has let you down time after time. It is up to you to reprogram this flawed thought process with self-care, accountability, support, and education. With the help of, Ibogaine your mind, body, and spirit will be more receptive than ever to acquire the tools for lasting change. There are various options available to begin this sustainable recovery journey. Here are several alternatives that are available and have worked for millions.

  • Life Coach
  • S.M.A.R.T Recovery
  • 12 Step Groups
  • Sponsor or Mentor
  • Spiritual Practice
  • Nutrition
  • Amino Acid Therapy
  • Purposeful Job

The above modalities and relationships are only a few of many that will help you to change your limitations, beliefs that once dictated the adverse outcomes produced by past drug use. Each one is set in place to lean on when life becomes challenging and teach you positive and healthy coping skills to deal with life on life’s terms.

So when someone says, “Ibogaine did not work” is a false statement. What really should be said is, “I chose not to work on myself” because a false expectation was created by thinking that Ibogaine is the “fix-all” and it can somehow undo years of drug use and thinking in a few days or weeks.


So leave with this. Ibogaine is one of the most unbelievable detox substances on Earth that will lead you to the awakening you need to kickstart a beautiful life. The key is, it is up to you to put in the work to do so. Think about how hard you worked at your addiction. If you were to place a quarter of that energy into a lifestyle of recovery, your life outcomes would improve incredibly. We have seen it happen thousands of times over. At the end of the day, you are in charge of your destiny, and change begins the moment you surrender to a different process other than your own.
