    One more thing, while I was getting treatment, one of my fellow patients was there for the second time. He was clean until he went to a meeting. There he saw a girl he knew. After the meeting, she asked him to get high with her, he agreed and that is why he ended up back in treatment. I have never purchased an illegal drug in my life and have no friends who use drugs. So, not being in an environment where I can get drugs has made the difference. After doing my research, I've notice the people who fail, have move back to there old environment where they can access drugs easily. Not good. If you are in a situation like this, I would suggest moving (if possible) to a location, for a few months, away from your old habits, anywhere not familiar. I know this is probably hard for most but I think it improves your chance of success by a huge factor. Look for clean friends or family members in another part of country or far away from home. Be honest and explain what you are doing. If you have not burned that bridge, use it. Good luck and looking forward to feedback.

    Hello all, I just returned from Mexico where I got ibogaine treatment. I am a chronic pain suffer had several very severe injuries. I was on 120 mg of oxy and fentanal patch 100mg. I call the place (clear sky recovery) and doctor told me I had to wait 2 weeks off Fentanal. So I did I got lucky my mail order pharmacy sent my next months supply more than 1 week early. It was like a higher power helped me. So I had enough to get me by. I got down last Tuesday 2/19/19. They are the greatest caring people I have ever met in my life. The first 3 days you are give Morphine the keeps you feeling great no withdrawals. During the three days you receive an EKG and Blood work to make sure you are a proper candidate. During my visit they did turn someone away due to his heart rate not being above 50. The did try everything but it just would not stay above 50. So, I got my Ibogain on Friday morning. It is a very good experience but feels very long It was over by 10 pm (12 hours) but I felt tired and stayed in the treatment room until 5 am. I am 56 years old with tons of injuries and I think that played a role. I stayed the longest out of everone. Most were done, in their room before midnight. I woke up weak but at 8 am Saturday feeling opiate free but tired. Again not the norm of others. The other guys there were going swimming living normal. It was amazing not needing any drugs to get by the day. This was the case with all who got the treatment. I am so frustrated we do not have this here in USA. It is just crazy. It cost $8500 for me but it vary slightly if you are on drugs that you have to wait to clear out of you system. One guy took Abilify and was down there 21 days before they would do the treatment so I am sure he paid more than me. The doctor down there really are experts on ibogaine. Dr Sola has been doing it 15 years without one death. He is so careful. I returned homeon 2/26/19 , drug free, withe zero desire to ever touch an opiate again. While you are there you speak to a therapist daily and they are amazing. I wish I could find someone local like them. So in finishing, if you can scrape together 8500. DO IT. It will save your life. One more important thing, the lack of desire to use will ware off after 3 to 6 months. YOu need to change your live and never think about an opiate again. Cut people of your life that may cause you to relapse. If you do opites once, you will be back to square one, addicted again. We have to accept we are big addicts and can never touch this junk again. I love all and tdo it. Good Luck. If you you have any ayou can reach me at JOECUS@gmail.com. I will get back to you
