The Future of Addiction Treatment

The goop Podcast - February 27, 2020 - 45:59

“Ibogaine made them ready for change,” says researcher Deborah Mash, PhD. Mash has been studying the effects of ibogaine since 1992.

Ibogaine may have the power to reset opioid tolerance and bypass many of the withdrawal symptoms that people endure when coming off of these drugs. Mash shares the extraordinary stories, people, and challenges behind the science, the studies, and the funding. And: what the future of ibogaine as a treatment for drug addiction might look like.
