It has become increasingly difficult to assist an individual to maintain long term recovery from substance abuse. Irrespective of which treatment centre the individual has been to, none guarantees a successful recovery. This is frustrating to individuals, their families and also service providers. The reason for this trend is not absolutely clear. Many treatment centres are rigid in use of their programs and depend on aftercare to improve recovery rates. Service providers are increasingly acknowledging that there is no one “best treatment” option as there are too many variations and complexities in reaching the goal of freedom from dependence and social reintegration. Hence the focus of this presentation, is to discuss the role of an anti-addictive herbal plant known as ibogaine in the treatment of substance abuse.
