An Exploratory Study of the Short-term Effects of Ibogaine Treatment on Drug Addicts
by Dr. Anwar Jeewa
It has become increasingly difficult to assist an individual to maintain long term recovery from substance abuse. This is frustrating to individuals, their families and also to service providers. The reason for this trend is not absolutely clear. Over the past decades the topic of Ibogaine has been one of active interest for many psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, spiritualists, and especially those involved in drug rehabilitation therapies and alternative healing modalities. It is for this reason that Ibogaine usage on drug addicts compared to those seeking a psycho-spiritual experience has been initiated. The following information is based on the demographic profile of those administered Ibogaine in the course of time spanning from January 2006 to June 2010 by Dr. Anwar Jeewa and staff. The major considerations taken are the gender, nationality, age- range and drug history and the psycho – spiritual effects. All information is based on the Screening Questionnaire of the Ibogaine Treatment Center CC which was directly provided by the client him/herself
The Mind Altering Science conference was organized by The OPEN Foundation on 23 and 24 October 2010 at the University of Amsterdam. With researchers and therapists from a wide variety of academic disciplines, this event was dedicated to the exploration of a broad range of subjects. From addiction treatment to psychotherapy with the aid of psychedelics, from the neurobiology of ayahuasca to the social, ritual and legal implications of its use, and from human psychopharmacology research and the exploration of exceptional mind states to new views on the legalization of psychedelic substances.
Building on the success of its first conference in 2010, The OPEN Foundation is busy organizing its second scientific conference on psychedelic research in the weekend of October 6 and 7: Interdisciplinary Conference on Psychedelic Research 2012.
