  • Ibogaine

    • Crossroads

      • Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center is located on the tropical Island of Nassau in the Bahamas.

      • Ibogaine is the primary active alkaloid in the Iboga plant, which is native to West Central Africa. It is a potent psychedelic substance with a long history of medicinal and ceremonial use. More recently it has gained popularity for its success in treating addiction, particularly opioid addiction.
        Ibogaine is effective in interrupting addictions to a number of substances including heroin, opioid medications (ie. Suboxone, Methadone, Oxycodone, etc), amphetamine & methamphetamine, cocaine, nicotine, and alcohol. Ibogaine is unique in that it is both an addiction interrupter as well as an effective way to address mental issues such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD.

  • Psilocybin (aka “magic mushrooms”)

    • Mycomeditations

      • Psilocybin-assisted therapy retreats in Jamaica, where “magic” mushrooms are legal

      • Their treatment model incorporates traditional knowledge, modern research, and psilocybin-assisted therapeutic practices. This allows patients to integrate and incorporate lasting lessons and insights gained from their psilocybin experience into daily life upon returning home.

    • Truffles are legal in the Netherlands and can be purchased at Smart Shops. Remember set and setting when doing them, and perhaps take the experience with some trusted friends in Vondelpark.

  • Ketamine

    • Because ketamine is a prescribable drug, medical doctors offer treatments at infusion centers in many locations throughout the US and we won’t list them here. However caution should be taken when seeking these out for treatment for psychological support such as depression and PTSD because many of them are run by anesthesiologists, not psychiatrists and therefore are not paired with any type of psychological support.

They utilize a unique form of psychedelic therapy that combines body-based psychotherapy with psychedelic medicines. Currently, they offer ketamine and cannabis assisted psychotherapy. They have found both of these psychedelic medicines extremely effective in accessing non-ordinary states of consciousness for working towards symptom resolution.
