People get familiar with routines, whatever they may be: from walking the dog, eating dinner, Saturdays at the park, having a cup of coffee, shooting up, smoking and/or drinking. Routines and habits are what become habituated with time. It is hard to break free of habits as they have become so intertwined with our existence with respect to time and how we spend our days. Our thinking patterns, behavioral patterns and even body responses are familiarized on certain "operating platforms." In order to change habits, one must be patient with time in order to slowly replace one thinking pattern or change one behavioral manifest. The problem is that time takes time and that makes shifting out of addiction difficult. It is an hour by hour and sometimes minute by minute conscious process of changing one little thing at a time. Just as in chemical reactions in which "activation energy" is needed to provide the stimulus for change, addicts too, often need an "activation energy" (a push, a jump start, a helping hand, a neurological shift, a body tune up) to enter recovery. Ibogaine addiction detox at Rapid Ibogaine Treatment may be just the right card for you!!
Odds are in your favor. Cards aren't stacked. Call to find out more about how ibogaine works for depression, post traumatic stress disorder, ptsd and addiction.

The energy, willpower, intelligence and gumption that it takes to be in active addiction is equal to the energy, willpower, intelligence and gumption that it takes to live a clean life. Both paths of life have intrinsic difficulties. A clean life has the potential for fun, purpose, success and happiness. After an addict stops feeling the "high" (happy/euphoria/sensations) of the drug but needs the drug just to feel normal, there is no room for fun, purpose, success and happiness. All of one's energy is caught in the spiraling and circling hustle that surrounds drug habits. As a result, addiction allows for no space, to be open within the being, to allow for the "Good Wolf" to be fed. It's such a vicious cycle - beyond feeding the good or bad wolf as the addict is stuck in the dark.
By using the plant medicine ibogaine as an addiction interrupter for opiate addiction, heroin addiction, severe depression and alcoholism, one has a chance to catch glimpses of light and wisdom from beyond this world, from beyond this time, allowing the individual to envision a future life with the ability to see beyond dark. Opiates, Black Tar, China White, Suboxone, Methadone, Subutex, short acting opiates, long acting opiates, heroin, pain pills - create veils of invisibility to a life of: "joy, peace, hope, serenity" etc.
'People who are "in the know," know that on a biological level, iboagine plant medicine alleviates opiate addiction withdrawals and heroin withdrawals. Ibogaine helps with recovery from severe depression. It helps alcoholics become free from alcoholism. Ibogaine helps with Parkinsons disease and some cancer patients seek out this rare plant medicine from Africa.
When used by addicts who are seeking to move into recovery, Ibogaine plant medicine acts as an "Addiction Interrupter." From a therapeutic, psychological and neurological perspective, ibogaine's transformation can best be imagined through using a metaphor of two cities.
Imagine your brain looking like a map associated with the city you live in today. Now imagine your brain looking like a map with the same city you live in today but from decades ago. Notice the difference between the two? I imagine the current map from today has many more roads, more buildings, more communication abilities, more detours, more houses, more signs, more directions etc. in comparison to the map from decades ago. Some cities are designed well in terms of many variables while other cities are not. Whether or not a city is "of a good design" is really dependent upon the times and external variables that are responsible for determining whether or not a city is built well. A city from decades ago has a lot less "clutter" and a lot more room and potential for growth.
When someone is experiencing addiction, s/he has had years of "city building" within the brain, resulting in pathways and edifices (thinking patterns, belief systems, habits, emotional responses) that are not in the individual's best interest.
Ibogaine plant medicine acts as an "addiction interrupter" in that it resets the brain's neurochemistry and neurotransmitter routes from the mental map of the "current city", to a mental map of that same city, only from decades ago. Ibogaine creates a "tabula rasa," "blank slate,"opportunity for entirely new road maps to be built within the individual that are in line with and in tune with the best interest of the individual's future.
Ibogaine is not a magic bullet. I wish it were. It is really important to complement your ibogaine experience with a knowledgable plant medicine therapist to help guide your journey both before and after.
