Outpatient Ibogaine Detox

Ibogaine is the most active ingredient from the purified extract of the roots of an African plant known as Tabernanthe iboga.  Ibogaine hydrochloride was first extracted by the French in the late 1800’s and was primarily used as a remedy for fatigue and depression.  The use for Ibogaine in the treatment of opiate addiction was discovered in 1962.   It has since been used as the primary active ingredient for Ibogaine detox in the treatment of opiate dependence.

This substance induces and accelerates the opiate withdrawal state while the individual is partially or completely dissociated from the physical discomfort by a hallucinogenic state.  The obvious benefits to this are mitigated by central nervous system toxicity that can follow.  Ibogaine is not legally approved for clinical use in the United States and is banned in a number of other countries.  The use of outpatient Ibogaine detox in the treatment of opiate dependence is considered questionable by many professionals, when there are now so many safe and effective options available that are FDA approved.
