Street opiates are a harrowing danger for millions. In the US alone, more than 300 people per week die from overdose of heroin, the supply of which is now typically enhanced with fentanyl.

Opiates are hard to quit beacuase the withdrawal symptoms both physical and psychological, are nearly impossible for most to overcome. Profound withdrawal symptoms include muscle cramps, yawning, restless legs, loss of appetite, tremors, chills, sweats, anxiety and irritability. These difficulties are at their worst two to three days after cessation but can continue for many weeks or even months. (Those who are overcoming methadone or suboxone use should expect worse and longer lingering withdrawal symptoms, up to a year).

Serenity Beach offers a holistic approach to overcoming drug dependency, especially opiates. Withdrawals can almost always be fully addressed with ibogaine. Ibogaine and short acting opiates are perfect foes. The heroin, oxy or morphine drape and reshape opiate receptor sites. Normally when the user quits using horrific withdrawals are the result and the distorted receptor sites gradually (slowly) self repair while the withdrawals go on and on. With an Ibogaine flood dose opiate receptors are restored to a pre addicted state and withdraws are gone .

Ibogaine and long acting opiates

Ibogaine versus Methadone, suboxone or subutex is similar but with a challenge: these synthetics don’t behave the way short acting opiates (SAOs) do, and resist the healing potential of ibogaine flood dose. Because of this, our participants who want to get off methadone or subs have to begin their process by switching to a SAO for an arranged period, long enough for the synthetic opioid to loosen its grasp on the sites.
