Are You Looking for Help for a Loved One Who Is Addicted to Drugs or Alcohol?

Ibogaine research history

Thankful is not a strong enough word.
As you hear the neighbor explain the expensive Ibogaine treatment center where his daughter is staying, you cannot help but remember that Halloween night a few years ago. You were sitting at home working on the computer, watching a television show, and answering the door as the neighborhood trick-or-treaters made their way up and down the street. One time when you went to the door to greet your guests, instead of finding a large group of candy seeking youngsters, you found your adult neighbor.
With adult beverage in hand, he stopped by to say hello and show you the hayrack he and some other neighbors were traveling on as they accompanied some of the teenagers who were trick or treating. As you quickly caught up with the news of your older daughters who were both college sophomores, he recounted a phone call that he had with his daughter earlier in the week. He proudly explained that his daughter had called with a somewhat medical question. She was wondering of she was suffering from a possible concussion or the effects of the second day of a hangover. While he laughed as he told the story, he explained that his daughter noticed a nasty bump on her head when she was showering. She had no idea how or when the bump came from.
Although he was laughing, and nearly boasting, of the weekend fun his daughter must have had, you could not help but wonder how any part of that story was funny. A college sophomore female who did not know if she had a concussion or a hangover was something that would have been alarming to you. Not something that was funny.
So now when that same neighbor talks of the Ibogaine treatment center half way across the country where that same daughter is staying, you are certainly far more than thankful that your daughter is starting her work internship the summer before her senior year. Your own daughter has told you stories of how her friend rather quickly moved from abusing alcohol to abusing narcotics. And how the narcotic use, along with some other risky behaviors, had led to an academic suspension. These two girls who had been so close in high school, were now worlds apart. You only hoped that the Ibogaine treatment center could work its magic and get your friend’s daughter back on the right track.
Drug Treatment Centers Can Provide a Rescue to Families Who Have Loved Ones Battling with Narcotics and Methadone Addiction
Some big problems start small. Occasional alcohol abuse in college can be a fleeting problem for some college students. For other, however, the alcohol can lead to bigger problems like cocaine addiction or opiate addiction. For some, the solution can become complicated. For the fortunate few who can afford the expensive option of an Ibogaine treatment center, however, there is hope.
Removed from their family, friends, and the source of their problems, some detox patients can turn their lives around and go on to productive and healthy lives. Unfortunately, however, the success of the detox center can depend on the amount of resources that a family is able to provide. For while some patients can see success after a short stay in a large setting, other patients need more one on one attention in very small facilities that do not place limits on the amount of time that a patient will stay.
Consider some of the following statistics about drug and alcohol use in America to understand the need that some families have for the very best treatment centers:

  • 47,000 people died due to fatal drug overdoses in the year 2014.
  • 2.6 million people with addictions have a dependence on both illicit drugs and alcohol.
  • 9.4 million people reported driving under the influence of illicit drugs in the year 2014.
  • 6.8 million people with an alcohol or drug addiction also have a mental illness.
  • 5 million hospital emergency room visits in the year 2011 were drug related.
  • 90% of those with a drug or alcohol addiction began drinking, smoking, or using illicit drugs before the age of 18.
