Ibogaine And Its Cost For Treatment
Due to the fact that an ibogaine treatment center calls for a return on a regular basis for a period of time, the cost of travel and rooming has to be factored into the cost of the treatment itself. That is why so many of the ibogaine treatment centers offer a special deal with room and board, along with the treatment. Quite a number of their clients will not be from the country in which the center is located, simply due to the reason that the treatment can not be had in some countries.
So, it depends on the location and the patient as to how much the cost will be. Ibogaine is very inexpensive; it costs very little to manufacture the alkaloid from the tree roots. The trees can be planted and nourished nearly anywhere, and if they are planted in a green house, they can produce year round. The substance can also be manufactured in a laboratory without the use of the tree. It is not a difficult chemical compound to manufacture. It costs about one twentieth the amount of a dose of one of the major drugs used to treat addiction. Methadone and Suboxeon are not cures for the addiction. They are replacement chemicals that must be taken, or the client will relapse or go into the severe withdrawal pangs of distress so often seen in heroin addicts.
That is one of the best things about ibogaine treatment: the lack of withdrawal symptoms. There are no heroin addict “Joneses” to deal with, no cramps, no muscular contractions and pain in the stomach. There are no delirium tremens for alcoholics, either. There are no withdrawal symptoms at all, for the most part. Once a person uses the ibogaine, the ibogaine mimics the heroin or alcohol molecule in the brain, and takes its place. As the ibogaine is slowly reduced, there are few, if any, side effects. When the treatment is over, the recidivism rate is very, very tiny. One could say that ibogaine is a huge success with the highest success rate, and they would be telling the truth.
The ibogaine itself is cheap. Where the expense lies is in the travel distance and the return visits necessary to accomplish the task. One could plan a vacation around the treatments, but if one is addicted, it is unlikely that a person in such a condition would even consider a vacation.
Suffice it to say that any treatment will have its own cost factors, and the best thing to do is to find a method and treatment that we all know will be a success. The only truly successful treatment is at an ibogaine treatment center. All other methods, the ‘step’ programs, the chemical dependency programs — they all have their moments, true. But the idea is not maintenance. The idea is a cure for the dependency, and the only real cure we see lies in the ibogaine treatment centers. So, when factored in with the cost of all treatments, and the possible cost of jail time and sickness, ibogaine treatment cost is very, very low indeed.
