Observational Study of the Long-Term Efficacy of Ibogaine-Assisted Therapy (Mexico)
Principal Investigator: Thomas Brown, Ph.D.
This observational case study examined changes in substance use in individuals seeking ibogaine-based addiction treatment for opiate dependence at two independent ibogaine clinics in Mexico. This study was intended to gather information to evaluate whether ibogaine-assisted therapy helps opiate-dependent people to implement positive changes in their drug use patterns and in their lives. Twelve-month follow-up data was collected from participants in the study to examine whether ibogaine-assisted therapy facilitates improvements in quality of life that result in decreased harms associated with chronic or mismanaged opiate use. The study was fully approved and began enrollment on August 23, 2010. Results were published on May 25, 2017, in The American Journal of Drug and Alcohol Abuse
