boys are Monty who's after my father passed away and the other one is sigh after my name sigh and they're great total inspirations for me but my heroin use I was able to hide it from everybody I mean I was pretty active heroin addict I didn't hadn't lost my job I hadn't lost my family yet but I I was about ready to and I knew I just wanted to
04:37
stop I have to these daily so just to get up out of bed and I would do maybe close to a gram a day and then I would always mix it with speed so that the heroin and the speed would kind of keep me balanced but it's no life to live every morning you wake up and you're so sick til you get your first fix and
05:10
nothing stops you from that first fix now your kids not nothing I was having breakfast with a friend of mine who is a chemist and he was going through a freezer he had and the freezer was full of different types of drugs he pulled out a small vial and said I think you'll be interested in this as well what is it I said well it's an African hallucinogen and it last 36 hours so here I am under the influence of this very powerful hallucinogen and I get
05:48
home and I lay down and the ibogaine is working and working and working and working and it's 33 hours later and I only thought to myself I'm exhausted I'm going to sleep for a week and I'm never going to take this drug again and I got dressed and I walked out of the house and that's when I realized that I was not in narcotic withdrawal and I looked at this large tree in front of me and I looked at the clouds in the sky and I realized that for the first time in my
06:20
life I was not frightened and perceived that my entire life had been full full of fear somewhere I think it was the end of 1988 or early 89 I believe I received a call from mr. howard lotsof who was living in Staten Island in New York City and he claimed he had a cure for drug addiction and he explained that somewhere in the late 60s he took this bizarre drug called IVA game and after
06:56
that experience he had lost his cravings for drugs and prior to that time he had been a multi drug user at the time I received this call I really didn't think very much of it and I get numerous calls from people who claim they have a cure for something or other and they want me to study it and most these people I think are really not in touch with reality and I see mr. lotsof was a similar nature and I dismissed the call really he called back several times and the more I talked to him the more intrigued I became and I was
07:29
particularly intrigued by the fact that he claimed that he took this drug once and you lost your cravings for drugs at least for several months or forever and this sort of Magic Bullet nishan is really unlike any pharmaceutical we have really for any disease [Music] we could cure drug addiction with a single pill but the Cure itself makes you high and government researchers
08:09
wondered if it really GU er anything at all Hiba gain is a psychedelic drug it puts its users on a three-day trip it's illegal in the US and no one knows if it really works it took me from 1984 to 1991 through the leadership of three different directors of the Nationalists that are drug abuse to finally get them to take a serious look at ibogaine you know imagine that you were a doctor he's been 12 years getting your education you spend 15
08:41
years in the field becoming an expert and then the last thing you're going to want to hear is some former heroin addict went and discovered the the effective medication that you're looking for so it was enormous [Music] well she carries her traditional diggable the Matheny Moon compare a initiate mocchi tec alleged to set on da da ma famille nunca Gandhi dance at the tradition matter media convert to scotia so

Lanisha and iboga originally the problem started we went through an awful divorce that devastated the family it overnight
11:17
changed our standard of living and my daughter at that time was about 13 or 13 when she started drinking wine and taking things out of the refrigerator things like they had one and it progressed very quickly to marijuana anything she could inhalants pills pretty quickly and progressed till I was doing crack and heroin when I was around 16 and once I was addicted to drugs I
11:54
couldn't work or go to school I knew that it was so bad that I was going to kill me but I I just couldn't I couldn't stop with the like the first chance I would get five dollars in my hand I just like this uncontrollable response but I did I did come to a place where it was really clear that I had to find a way to to get sober or I was just gonna dive really soon I never could accept the the
12:25
philosophy of tough love I I just couldn't everyone around me said the only way that you can help is by stepping back and not no form of support but her drug use had gotten so severe that I step back and just wait for the worst to happen so I started learning about how to help I sent her to a number of treatment centers one in California one in Dayton one in Cleveland all over
12:58
an all very expensive thinking the better the the care the better it would help nothing nothing would last she would go through it she got so knowledgeable she could teach the courses she knew it here but she said you know when discussing her relapses she'd say I just I just can't help it a number of occasions not a number two occasions it was so severe that she had
13:30
lost a pulse she had turned blue she needed to be resuscitated with the cardio whatever you call those electro things to bring her to bring to start her heart again so it just got to the point the only word I can use for it is desperate so I went on the internet read everything I could on this and I talked to my daughter about about this and it was to the point where I put everything in balance and it
14:01
was either my daughter was going to die excuse-excuse me or to do something as unconventional and radical and I am a I'm a middle-class American guy I was I'm not prone to doing things outside of the you know certainly an outside of the law I began I found out very quickly he's not legal in this country yeah I began as a Schedule one substance within the United States it was dumped into
14:46
Schedule one because it has properties similar to a hallucinogens so you know during the whole drug hysteria with LSD and everything else is leo cabe and that too of course the irony is the definition of a Schedule one substance is a substance that has absolutely no medicinal value now I'd say there's something that lets you completely step out of you know heroin addiction or move away from crack or an entire variety of poly substance abuse disorders has a
15:17
whole hell of a lot of medicinal value what we're gonna do is we're gonna give you the game first we're gonna give you a test dose with any medication for nausea half an hour later we're gonna give you the rest of the dose the total weight the total dose is determined by your body weights okay the reason we split it up see if you have an allergic reaction and also make the experience smoother okay it is very important that it as soon as you start feeling it you don't move because it causes intense now move
15:53
your head so don't move your hand well everybody I began administration needs to be done in a safe situation I began is not inherently safe as people have found out time and time again and for us the two most important things is the safety and the comfort of the patient everything everything else pales in
16:26
comparison so we try to administer our ibogaine safe situation we use a hospital you put our patients on heart monitors we have nurses and people available with emergency plans and the next thing is the patient's comfort I mean that's why we're here is to make these patients comfortable if they wanted a detox that was hard they could go and do cold turkey but we want to take what could be an uncomfortable situation and make it as comfortable as possible for them it's right here Plex oh all right so community use bathroom oh this just you know plugging it back in but if you need
17:02
to go ahead just you can just snap it off okay cool now did the doctor explained to you that anything to see anything that is disturbing or that you don't like you can blink your eyes it'll go away okay good we leave you alone for about a half an hour and I'll come back and check on you all right all righty my father was an extremely powerful man
17:32
and he always look up to him and always to just being a kid and then he ended up passing away well I was like 19 so it's just really difficult for me then I I ended up going up to San Francisco and got into heroin up there found found that missing piece but then that missing piece is the devil [Music]

21:53
what exactly does it do we don't know of course that same answer can be applied to many things that are in the PDR right now we don't know but they seem to work I began has affinity for multiple receptor sites classically in the past the FDA does not like that they like specific mechanisms of action that can have a direct cause and effect so I mean if you want to hit addiction you do have to hit it at multiple levels and in
22:26
addition to like pharmacological agents you you do need some sort of psychological paradigm to navigate whatever it is that you do to tune your head you have to do something so the exact mechanism of action I mean there are a lot of theories but the bottom line is nobody is exactly sure everything that it's doing I mean it seems to hit into a receptor reset it it
22:57
blocks opiate withdrawal cravings I mean having been there and done that oh [ __ ] yeah it it works nothing else does you're not going through withdrawal I'm so busy I just am I feel fine very good are you comfortable no I just had to lay on my side my back is hurting a little bit is that okay oh yeah it's perfectly okay you know you have a buggy here in case you know it's good okay cool thank you and I'm gonna give you
23:44
some more time okay there's like this feeling a warmth in your solar plexus like this ball of heats and the warmth slowly feels like it's kind of coiling up your spine and as it's moving up your spine the pain let's go it's like this vice that is smashing it is releasing and it keeps going and you're going from a state where you're just experiencing
24:18
complete hell it feels like you're being suspended in this warm field of energy that's pretty [ __ ] amazing because within 30 to 45 minutes of doing ibogaine your habit is gone oh you don't have a lot of time to reflect on it right at that moment because that's when I swear the visionary part starts [Music] [Music] [Music]
25:48
[Music] I cried for a long time I don't know why I'm just so big stuff right now I can't tell you yeah cuz it's very intense it's like no it's like it's like it's like fried yeah I've been I've heard memories for
26:45
my childhood and I swear I I saw the thing is it I don't know it was so trippy I felt like I was flying so cool [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Laughter]
28:25
[Music] [Music] what is so special about will first look at it in terms of its treatment of chemical dependence what is so special about ibogaine is it can reverse addiction I mean we can take an active heroin addict an active cocaine addict somebody with a completely runaway
29:27
addiction syndrome and bring them into a hospital yes if we were doing it or into an apartment or into a wheaty Chapel and give them ibogaine or iboga or iboga extracts and completely reverse that addictions and are literally turning an addict into a non addict over a two to three day period and that's simply unseen in terms of its other no one value as a psychotherapeutic drug as a drug to be used in psychotherapy I don't
29:59
think that it has an equal I think I'm again is the most dramatic drug too that can be used in psychotherapy it just allows a complete review by the individual of the issues they consider most important to themselves we all know the questions we have to ask and we all know the answers and I became precipitates that discussion so what are you dressing for a little bit think it now no yawning no nothing
30:43
nothing it's like mm-hmm I feel like I'm totally drug-free yeah it's so trippy but I'm pretty worked it's yeah that's normal all right I'll see you tomorrow thank you sure is a very strange word to err implies that something outside of yourself will completely rewire you it will not you are still whoever you are what people are different the question
31:12
is what are you other than drug dependent and you know different people have different pathways out of that but the bottom line is you have to face yourself you have to deal with yourself and it's really very hard sometimes what ibogaine is ibogaine is this doorway that you walk through and on the other side you're clean but the problem is when you get to the other side of the doorway there's a vacuum behind you and that vacuum is trying to suck you back into addiction so if you don't get up and get moving away from that doorway
31:44
you're gonna get sucked back into your addiction people didn't need to know that ibogaine is not a magic bullet it's not a cure for addiction it's an addiction interrupter and it will give many people a chance they would not have without it I like to say that I begin to catalyst for change if you come here determined to use the ibogaine determined to stay clean I think you'll stay clean if you come take ibogaine for kicks you know you're probably gonna go back to using afterwards so if you're gonna choose to do ibogaine come with a plan plan to go into some kind of after care
32:15
home plan to move plan to break up with that boyfriend that you're using dope with the first people that I met when I settled here I guess there was still something in me that was attracting the sort of people that I didn't need to be hanging around with and I I thought that it would be okay for me to just smoke pot and drink and have a normal life because I hadn't had a normal childhood and I wanted to do it but it quickly led to me finding crack I never was able to find heroin in this town which was really
32:45
good and the problem that I had here was very short compared to my life before but it it took me getting to a place where I realized it wasn't something that was out of my control or out of my hands I had to make a conscious choice whether I wanted to live or die and nobody was going to do it for me and ibogaine could could certainly help with the cravings but it wasn't going to be the catalyst for that willingness the things you need to get at a health
33:34
food store you need to get melatonin and vitamin D the melatonin will help us sleep you take one per ten days before sleeping okay stay away from people who are not good for you places situations I mean you know what triggers you laughs so take it slowly well exercise and you'll see you'll start feeling much better I mean today's you know the emotional aspects are coming out every day you'll feel stronger okay your energy will come
34:04
back your mood will improve you'll feel much better okay all right thanks with 34 years old now I don't know if that matters you know maybe if I was 23 I wouldn't stop maybe I wasn't ready but at 30 [ __ ] 4 I'm death it doesn't
34:37
mean that I won't go to concerts doesn't mean that I won't go out dancing doesn't mean what I won't live my life but I'm just not gonna be on drugs my passions are surfing my passions are snowboarding my children I needs hair on I think the ibogaine is a very important
36:18
treatment option that needs to be made more available to everybody and it's not available right now there's only a very few places to go do it and it's only a very few place to do it safely and it's unfair that the drug addicts they you know they can't afford to come down to Mexico they can't afford to fly up to Vancouver and get into their program because it's hard to get into the program and can't afford to go to sane kids or I can't afford to flower in Amsterdam can't have this treatment it's not fair to them and that's when I became becomes political because the FDA
36:48
I don't think it's going to approve this there's no pharmaceutical company that's gonna administer this the only way we're gonna make obligating legal here in the United States is if we end the drug war when we end the drug war then we can say ok I begins available to the people that need it and then we can give it to the different drug treatment centers that would be able to handle situations and administer this safely the patents on using ibogaine for drug dependence and various poly substance abuse disorders I mean the opiate pendant has expired as of 2004 the rest of them were in the
37:20
process of expiring so you can't patent it for as a addiction interrupter as it's being called it is not a maintenance drug it you know you take something one just twice three times if you've taken I beginning more than three times and you're still like strung out it's all you so it's it's not something that anyone's going to generate a lot of money on because no one keeps taking it there's no maintenance it has that
37:51
really annoying side effect of producing those waking visions it is potentially dangerous if given to the wrong people in the wrong dose ranges basically everything you can possibly stack against something it's stacked against ibogaine I've been to the Betty Ford Center really I ended up shooting up on my way out of the parking lot that wants to McDonald Center in San Diego went to
38:29
Vista Pacifica I've been to charter Warren I have yeah I've had a hellish his time getting off this [ __ ] so when did you first we can search for trying to get clean and stuff I was looking for something to fill a void in my soul I feel like
39:04
I'm not missing that piece more like whatever happened filled all my voice I don't know why it's like beyond me it's like I can't grasp it [Applause] you have to understand the pharmaceutical industry the pharmaceutical industry is not there to develop medications to cure disease it's there to develop medications to increase
39:44
the profits of shareholders now as a president of a small pharmaceutical or Medical Development Corporation I contacted the licensing directors of major companies like in Malaya and DuPont and ciba-geigy medium companies and even smaller companies trying to obtain their interest and the the the similarity of response was really surprising from larger companies to medium companies to small comes to reason of lack of
40:16
interest not only in ibogaine but in medications to treat addiction were all the same the first issue was the fatality rate in the population of drug users drug users are dying at a rate of 3 to 7 times the normal population which means that the liability to the company associated with those fatalities is that much greater so immediately there is a deficit of liability to the development of drugs to treat that disorder also I
40:47
was reminded that the companies have to spend their money in the best way to demonstrate profits to their shareholders not in the best way to treat various diseases additionally the companies did not wish to get involved with the treatment of drug addiction because of the stigma associated with the field and you would think that well if a company developed a cure for addiction that would be very good for them but the stigma attached to addiction is so great that even to provide effective medications in that
41:19
field it's viewed as problematical by the companies it certainly should be and angry that disappointed more than anything but not surprised frankly I think there's enough wheels within wheels and match nations that I can I understand why it's not in their best interest to come come up with it but God willing a good capitalist at one of those drug companies will say oh this could be a gold mine and they'll go and do it and then and then it will be available legally through however it be
41:53
dispensed but that didn't stop me from from leaving the country that's how desperate I was and unfortunately there are a lot of people that that have the resources I did at the time which are modest but you know food of all the people on the street that could benefit from this and they don't have the wherewithal to do it and all the other things that go with recovery no kioku home a carny shut up you turn a mattress on member momadunc on one elbow
42:42
here I mean any mobility my vote to run me none kebab go through a meter wordy when you want Mike over here comment window back enemy minuta hi hi baby yeah we were in the car love you it's my
43:59
little girl Lexi my dog that's my boy Monty there's a lot more to the story than people are learning in treatment centers and at 12-step meetings and there's nothing wrong with either of those institutions but their message is that drug addicts have a disease they're
44:32
gonna have it the rest of their life and there's this there's only one approach to healing that disease which is to go to meetings and do the 12 steps and and I certainly think those things are helpful but they never get you past the place where you're identified as being a person with a sickness that sort of always has to be a consideration in your life and I feel like I began has introduced me to this whole parallel
45:04
universe of realizing that my mind is not all there is and wow my drug problem was very real it doesn't have to ever happen again and that's because I can choose for it's not happen again global awareness and availability has significantly expanded and increased I think that is absolutely wonderful and I think that will continue at the same time I have great doubts that it's ever
45:44
gonna be an accepted treatment modality for drug dependence I see a few very small sort of aborted efforts that haven't gone anywhere unfortunately I think I began will simply continue to exist expand and grow and the awareness of it grows so people who are in a position that they need it at least know that it's out there and if you know that it's out there then you have the opportunity to make choices and get it however it is that you do so
46:16
unfortunately I do not think you're gonna be in a position in Western society anywhere that you're gonna go to your doctor and okay I'm strung out and he's gonna say oh okay well you can get ibogaine treatment I would want that that would be the right thing to do unequivocally I can say that would be the right thing to do but it's I don't see it happening I have really done I don't believe that ibogaine will be the drug that's used in the future I
46:47
think it will be used but I like a lot of other people are waiting to see what the second generation drugs well turn out to be when you're an addict and suddenly are not an addict that's a very valuable experience I observed how poorly treated addicts are in our society and I wanted to do
47:20
something with my life and the most important thing I could perceive of doing was producing ibogaine as an available medically approved drug and that's what I what drove with me [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music] [Music]
