But, unfortunately, that’s not true. Only after detoxification, the addict may tackle the most complex part, which is the most difficult and causes many patients to relapse. Even after several months of abstinence. It is the psychological crisis – drug desire or drug craving. With the help of this document, we will try to explain how helpful Ibogaine is. It is a natural substance and maybe one of the greatest medical achievements. Many studies and patient’s experiences show that Ibogaine is very successful in the elimination of drug craving. Ibogaine treatment program is definitely one of the best medical methods that can cure patients from addiction.
1. Ibogaine treatment program – Diagnostics
This is the first and most important phase of treatment. The essence of diagnosis is to assess the physical and mental condition of the patient. In order to assess the physical condition of the patient, the standard diagnosis examination includes:
- urine test
- tests for hepatitis B and C, as well as for HIV infection
- general analysis of blood
- biochemical blood test
- examination by the internist doctor
In order to assess the mental state of the patient, a standard diagnosis examination includes psycho-diagnosis. Psychological tests can determine the level of dependence and how much did the use of cannabis affect the mental health. Also, this test can show whether there are signs of mental disturbance or depression, and the degree of motivation for rehabilitation. After diagnostics, team of doctors examine the results. They do it in order to develop a treatment strategy and plan.
In the case that the diagnosis reveals serious deviations in the tests, doctors can organize additional tests or treatment for the accompanying diseases. Depending on the problem, doctors can prescribe MRT, EEG, ultrasound, X-ray, endoscopy and analyses of the concentration of drugs and narcotics. There can also be an examinations by cardiologists, neurologists, endocrinologists, specialists in infectious diseases etc. The price of this treatment package does not include additional tests.
2. Preparation for the session
One day before the session, doctors cary out special psychological tests. This will help them collect information about the patient and his life. The doctors shall determine the exact dose of Ibogaine which patient will receive, in order to give the best result. After several days of consuming alcohol, the person is at risk of developing seizures or alcoholic delirium.

It also includes a set of preparations that protects the brain and normalizes the heartbeat, liver, kidney and peripheral nervous system. The detoxification process lasts from one to two days in mild cases and from five to seven days in cases of heavy drinking.
