Ibogaine treatment may be the way that difficult drug addiction cases are dealt with in the future. While there’s currently very little data to base judgments on, preliminary research suggests that the plant-based substance might very well help addicts to stop using the substances that they’ve become dependent on. Alternative medicine advocates in many parts of the world have opened ibogaine clinic complexes that have so far been getting very good results. That doesn’t mean that it’s not an addictive substance in its own right. Use of the iboga plant can cause serious side effects and even death. That’s why it’s important for patients to work with a regulated ibogaine treatment center.
