Pre-Detox Support

The physical detoxification process will be unique for each person, and some people may need to do a pre-detox before they do their Ibogaine de-tox.

Pre-detoxing is done using herbs and natural supplements to either reduce an opiate dosage for the time period prior to an Ibogaine flood, or to refrain from using Methadone or Suboxone for the required amount of time (typically several weeks) before their Ibogaine detox.

 

Dosage Reduction

Pre-detoxing can be done to reduce opiate dosages for the time period prior to the Ibogaine detox. Many people prefer detoxing with Ibogaine from as low an opiate dose as possible so that it is a gentler transition for the body.

Pre-detoxing for this purpose is done using herbs and supplements in conjunction with opiates to taper comfortably.

When using Ibogaine to detox from these substances, you must abstain from methadone for a minimum of two weeks and suboxone a minimum of three weeks prior to ingesting Ibogaine.

Typically people will use short acting opiates to prevent withdrawals during this time, but for those who do not wish to take opiates as part of the detox process, they can use a regimen of herbs and supplements to prevent withdrawal symptoms.

 

Post Detox Support

Post detox can oftentimes be full of many challenges, such as coping with PAWS (post acute withdrawal syndrome) and creating new healthy patterns in one’s life.

Support specialists can help clients design a long term plan that will focus on topics such as:

  • coping with fatigue and insomnia,
  • designing personalized aftercare plans,
  • online 12 step support,
  • and more.

 

Virtual Aftercarecoaching

One of the most important goals during the recovery process is to teach clients to implement healthy and productive patterns in their daily lives, while teaching them to cope with adversities in a safe and responsible manner.

Aftercare regimens are individually designed to meet the specific needs of the client, based on their current situation and their future goals.

Support specialists will work with clients virtually to help them design and implement their own personalized aftercare plans.

Topics of focus will be:

  • designing an aftercare plan,
  • long-term organic maintenance regimens,
  • support groups,
  • counseling or psychotherapy,
  • nutrition and fitness,

  • gaining independence,
  • finances and career,
