    1. Lissa Friedman PhD – Post Ibogaine Psychotherapy Provider – Provider states: “Some people come for therapy to be free of addiction and live a fulfilling life. Depending on their dedication to deep, honest, introspection this process can take several months to a year or so. For others once they have emerged from the cocoon of the past, they begin to question life itself and their True nature. At this point they have entered what I call the transpersonal realm. This phase of the process is no longer therapy in the traditional sense, but more guidance, or mentoring. This part of the journey is more freeing than healing; in that the patterns of identifying as a separate person are being loosened and released. How far anyone wants to go is always up to them.” Contact: e-mail: lissafriedman@gmail.com Tel: tel:352-538-4903, Skype: lissafriedman.

    2. http://www.afterthemedicine.com/ – Brian Murphy, M.Ed, LCSW – Provider states: “I am a holistic psychotherapist, I have taken plant medicine myself, and I’ve been providing ibogaine after-care for more than ten years now. What I see over and over is that ibogaine opens amazing doors for us and makes all kinds of life changes possible. But so often the environment people return to from treatment is not in tune with this kind of experience, and has no way to nourish it. In holistic therapy I work with you to reconnect with your ibogaine experience so the vision can become a resource for your whole life. We discuss the meaning of the ‘grace period’ after treatment, I do guided meditations and stress reduction exercises, we plan out your next steps for the future, and we support those steps with spiritual and emotional healing. I have also been involved in the humane and respectful treatment of drug users since 1996, when I did street-side therapy outside of a syringe exchange van in East Harlem — and I continue working there to this day.” Contact: Brian Murphy e-mail: brianmurphytherapist@gmail.com, Tel: +1 917 671 6923.
