  1. Great article, I enjoyed reading your post on ibogaine. As a recovering addict, I know how helpful the drug can be, however, I do know that there are some people who are against it as it can be dangerous. I’ve been doing research on ibogaine addiction treatments and the pros and cons of this type of treatment.

    Should anyone else be interested to see how this would help others here’s the page I looked at

    Hopefully, this information can assist someone (friends and families) in choosing the best recovery treatments.
