Ibogaine is an experimental medication for the treatment of chemical dependence. Claims for this antiaddictive drug include significant reduction in opioid withdrawal signs and interruption of drug seeking and craving behavior. The Ibogaine Dossier is the oldest internet source of information on this substance. Within the Dossier you will find reports on subjects as diverse as ibogaine's use in African religion to cutting edge neuroscience.

What's New

Copenhagen, Denmark, 2008. Between October 31 and November 3, The Danish Drug Users Union (BrugerForeningen) hosted drug user advocates from around the world to celebrate International Drug Users Day (IDUD) and the Conference on Drug User Activism. Concurrent to these events were the General Assembly of the International Network of People who Use Drugs (INPUD) and the fifteenth anniversay celebration of the Danish Union. Among the presentations given during the conference was a unique ibogaine slide show directed towards those who would benefit most from ibogaine. Please see: The Ibogaine Community Worldwide - User to User.
Among the participants in the Copenhagen events were two recently treated ibogaine patients. One of the subjects was kind enought to prepare a report, Ibogaine Trip Report Prepared For BrugerForeningen. The report proivdes an instant view of the growing international collaboration between doctors, users and user organizations showing how important mutual respect can be.
Washington, DC, 2008. During August 15 and 16, Gabonese graduate students in the United States who had received scholarships from the government of Gabon organized a conference to recognize the Gabonese experience in the United States and the celebration of Gabonese independence day. Journées Gabonaises aux Etats-Unis provided a broad range of subjects related to Science, Health, politics and business. While most of the two hundred participants were familiar with the Bwiti religon and its sacrament Iboga, very few were familiar with ibogaine science. The conference organizers invited Howard Lotsof, the discoverer of ibogaine's antiaddictive effects to present that information. The PowerPoint slide show is available both in english and french.
