My ibogaine experience started in Lansing, Michigan. I was attending a methadone clinic; my daily dose was 80-100 mg. In addition to the methadone, I was doing 6-10 bags of heroin and 1-3 grams of cocaine every day. I used opiates for about four years. I met Randy in February of 2002, when he came to my clinic to share information about ibogaine. After talking to the doctors at the Pangea Biomedics and contemplating the treatment for a couple months, I decided ibogaine treatment was my best opportunity for getting off of drugs. I flew to San Diego and Randy picked me up at the airport. From there, he took me to the treatment center, which is located on the Pacific Ocean in Rosarito, Mexico.
Shortly after arriving, I was administered the ibogaine. After about 45 minutes, I started hearing a buzzing. The psychedelic experience lasted about four hours. The imagery I saw was mostly yellow and red. I had many visions from my past, including my childhood and my teenage years; this was the most pertinent part of my experience. The ibogaine gave me insight into the roots of my addiction and the emotional issues my addiction thrived on.
I would like to mention that the doctors were very professional. They treated and cared for me in an excellent manor. I would definitely recommend this treatment to anyone suffering from opiate dependence.
