I’ll pitch my tent in E.R. if I have to

I have been trying to get help for Troll’s addiction for at least 2 years now.

Why can’t he get help that really helps? And why is it that his granddad can stay in the hospital for months, waiting for placement in a carehome, and receive state-of-the-art, head-to-toe care while waiting?  But not my son?

This has gone on too long. It’s already gone beyond being ludicrous. It’s desperation. It’s time to take a stand. Make a statement. With so many services used it must have cost society far more than a treatment bed ever would.

Services we’ve used:

GPs, ERs, psychiatrists, nurses, mental health teams, addictions teams, police here and police back there, soup kitchens, food banks, shelters, detox homes, 12-step religious treatment homes and counsellors-galore!

That’s the measurable list. There’s also the toll it’s taken on family and friends, and especially me.

One thought on “I’ll pitch my tent in E.R. if I have to

  1. Iboga, or Ibogaine is an African herb that has been used in Central America for more than 25 years. Natures treatment Centers Ibogaine provider is a Medical Physician and has personally supervised Iboga treatments for over 20 years. I encourage you to explore some of the videos and articles featured on our Facebook page, raizelita@groups.facebook.com

    Due to the obscene increase in the number of deaths due to heroin overdoses, especially in the Northeast, it seems logical to investigate and validate claims for a remedy that does not create another addiction, such as suboxone and methadone.

    While Iboga may be legal as a spiritual enhancement in the many countries, it is primarily used overseas in treating addiction. The pharmaceutical industry is presently attempting to create a patent-able version of Iboga that does not cause any hallucinogenic effects. This seems to indicate financial motives may be involved in keeping Iboga out of the mainstream public view. While Iboga may be legal as a spiritual enhancement in many countries, it is primarily used overseas in treating addiction.

    One of the other uses of an Iboga treatment is a spiritual experience, perhaps best compared to use of mushrooms or other indigenous ceremonials. I need to emphasize that Iboga is not LSD. It has only mild hallucinogenic properties, and experience has shown that the participants have control over where they are on their inner journey. For example, one gentleman was unhappy at where he was, and began to feel stressed. The provider suggested that he simply say out loud that he did not want to be there. And just like that, he was in a different place on his inner journey. Unlike acid, there is no great risk for a “bad trip”.

    You will see that Iboga removes all trace of the craving and greatly reduces withdrawal. The last patient we helped at Natures Treatment Center said that just 5 days after Iboga, he felt like he had never taken heroin at all, ever. It’s not an easy process, however, and according to Dr. Lopez, the patient needs to be totally supervised every minute for the first week. Less so the following week. The resolution of the physical addiction with Iboga is only half the problem however.

    The other half of the restorative process is helping the individual get at the inner issues that caused him to like and pursue the addictive process, accidentally or with intent. At Natures Treatment Center our Aftercare program is considered an essential part of treatment. If this inner process is not accomplished, a person can be healed, have a transformational inner experience and go home. And get hungry for a different easier softer way: another addictive process. Drinking, other drugs, or a return to heroin, morphine, Oxycontin, etc. We have investigated other providers of Iboga, and have found that the huge success rates are real, but that without aftercare, relapse is very frequent.

    Iboga treatment is a new concept to the Western world: To be freed almost immediately from the cravings and the severe withdrawal. Given the poor success rates of traditional treatment centers, it is sensible to look at other more effective options. Please feel free to call me with additional questions at 800-385-0307.
