People come to us for a variety of issues from addiction, to depression, eating disorders, spiritual blockages and beyond. The answer is it depends on several factors. The best way to get this answered is to fill out an application, being as open and honest as possible, allowing us to assess your specific situation. Then we can give you an honest assessment, discuss the pros and cons, and give you a realistic expectation of outcome.
Before someone is accepted for treatment an IbogaQuest counselor will help you determine if iboga is appropriate for you and outline the precautions we will require. Generally, prior to arrival everyone is asked to obtain up-to-date EKG readings and liver panels and asked to bring hard copies of these to us so that our doctor can review them as part of the intake process. We only use the highest quality ibogaine and custom prepare each person’s doses. We have a qualified nurse present and continually monitor blood pressure and other vital signs. – We will ask you for any dietary needs, preferences and irregularities, which we will do our best to accommodate. We also require a complete and honest account of all medications, including over-the counter and prescription use. Over the course of the last decade, we have not had to admit anyone to the emergency room for reactions to ibogaine, but we never let our guard down. 100% transparency is your in best interest.
Prior to the administration of ibogaine, every guest undergoes a very thorough screening and assessment process, and a lot of attention is paid to preparation and post-treatment counselling. Our goal is to have every applicant here for addiction interruption leave us drug-free and without cravings or withdrawal symptoms, and with the skills and supports necessary to maintain that state long into the future.
It is the IbogaQuest policy that we do not accept people coming here together who have an emotional connection. Iboga is a deep and personal experience. It is as egocentric an experience as most of us have had in our adult lives. To be drawn out of your experience with concern for another guest is to sell yourself short. Encountering Iboga is a major investment in your own future and well being. It needs to be fully honored.
We operate in the outskirts of Tepoztlán, a small, extraordinarily magical town in the state of Morelos, Mexico. Our guests usually fly into the Mexico City airport where they are met by our driver and transported the hour and a half to our facility. Upon completion of their treatment, transportation is again provided to the airport, all included in one’s overall fee.
The length of treatment depends on the condition of the applicant and the issues to be addressed. Our minimum course of treatment is 5 days, but for addiction interruption we strongly recommend that there be additional aftercare plans in place. We offer an extended week of treatment to all clients, which includes psycho-therapy and possible ‘booster doses’ as deemed to be appropriate. Our goal is maximize the odds for success and lower the likelihood for relapse. Addiction comes with a lifestyle that has to be altered, and we feel that to send people home without a realistic, strong and workable plan, including skills, connections, and supports, is irresponsible.
IbogaQuest fees are determined by several variables. This relates to the individual situation and the protocol regarding the number of days required for the medicinal application and therapeutic processes. IbogaQuest takes pride in the quality of our care and we are certain that you will find our fees are quite competitive. To obtain a price quote we ask that you start by filling out an application so that we can learn the details of your specific situation.

Ibogaine for Addiction Interruption
While we can appreciate the enormous burden and stress addiction places on the family, we will ask that the person who will be receiving treatment apply directly. We are willing to assist with information when it may be helpful.
Ibogaine for Spiritual Development
Everyone is different, and everyone’s definition of spirituality is different. So this is subjective. With that said, ibogaine can put the experiencer into a state of being where they can objectively see patterns, past traumas, past experiences, formative experiences during childhood, in order to see blockages and energetic hooks that with the help of the ibogaine experience they can then move beyond to a place of freedom.
Please see our Ibogaine for Spiritual Growth page for more information.
Ibogaine is not a magic bullet. Any endeavour, whether it be to material ends or spiritual ends, takes commitment and desire. If you approach your ibogaine experience in earnestness and with dedication, you may experience profound breakthroughs. We say in some cases, years of work can be done in a condensed period of time. This all depends on you.
Again, this is subjective. Ibogaine can aid in revealing difficult truths in which you can work through to achieve profound breakthroughs. Who you are ultimately depends on you.
The ibogaine experience lasts in the mind/body/nervous structure long after the actual experience. It keeps working after you have left our facility. In many cases, what you experience, will stay with you and give you the courage and momentum to change habits and behaviors. But in the end if you do not change factors such as environment or relationships, you will be faced with the same challenges as before. However, in some cases, even if nothing changes, you will be better equipped to handle those situations that previously were challenging due to having gained a new perspective.
Please contact us to ask about the various aftercare options we provide or recommend.
We believe that all approaches and modalities in one’s spiritual journey, if authentic, have the same end. To get the seeker to see that who and what we truly are, is beyond what what we think we are. And to realize the inherent oneness of all existence.
Ibogaine is just one tool. One can mediate on the mountaintop for years, have a spontaneous awakening walking down the street, or experience ibogaine under the supervision of experienced professionals.
Many paths, one goal.
The mind is the mind. It can be noisy, questioning, analytical to the point of fault. Even when people experience profound awakenings, the mind can still operate in this way. What can change is our relationship with mind. We can stop believing everything that we think is true and real. During the ibogaine experience we can experience profound clarity, seeing things clearly for what they are. This can give us a reference point that we can use when we go back out into the world.
Our hope is that you may experience this reference point. And that this clear seeing permeates every part of your world and experience. And that profound changes happen for you as a result. We will do everything in our power to make this happen.
But as we have said, this all depends on you.
