Ibogaine Treatment Aftercare: Collaboration Between Hope Rehab and Tabula Rasa Retreat
At Hope Rehab in Thailand, we’ve witnessed the transformative journey many individuals undertake to reclaim their lives. While we don’t offer ibogaine treatments ourselves, we frequently welcome clients from Tabula Rasa Retreat who wish to extend their recovery journey with us.

Our core belief centers on the innate ability and personal agency of individuals to overcome their addictions. Our approach leans heavily on a traditional 12-step recovery model, which we’ve adapted and integrated into a unique system. This enriched system weaves together the tenets of the 12-step model with holistic practices, such as meditation, exercise, and cognitive behavioral therapy, to offer a comprehensive recovery pathway.
We acknowledge that there are multiple pathways to recovery, and while we ourselves do not advocate for the use of Ibogaine, we respect and recognize its potential role in commencing the recovery journey for certain individuals.

The profound experiences induced by ibogaine treatment, including the unearthing of deep-seated memories and traumas, necessitate an environment of understanding, care, and structured support.
Our collaboration with Tabula Rasa Retreat is rooted in this understanding.
Those coming to us post their ibogaine treatment at Tabula Rasa Retreat can expect a haven where they can safely navigate and process the complexities of their experiences for periods of a month or more. Our goal is to provide them the tools and the environment to work on the emotions, memories, and traumas brought to the surface, ensuring that they find a path toward holistic healing and sustainable recovery.
Please be advised, every individual’s journey is unique, and while we offer our tools and expertise, the recovery process remains a deeply personal one, contingent on individual commitment, resilience, and circumstances.
The Legacy of Iboga
The Tabernanthe Iboga shrub, native to Equatorial West Africa, harbors a powerful ancestral medicine: the psychoactive alkaloid, ibogaine. This unique compound has been a beacon of hope for those overwhelmed by the complexities of modern life, especially those battling addiction and mental health issues.

Historically, the root bark of the Iboga shrub, where ibogaine is most concentrated, has been consumed by several tribes practicing the Bwiti spiritual tradition. This ancestral practice has been pivotal in providing psycho-spiritual insight, emotional healing, and wisdom passed down through generations.
Modern Discoveries and Benefits
By the 20th century, the therapeutic properties of ibogaine started to gain recognition in the West. Howard Lotsof’s 1962 discovery of ibogaine’s capability to eliminate heroin cravings ushered in a new era of appreciation for this ancestral medicine.
Today, research supports ibogaine’s potential in addressing various forms of addiction, trauma, PTSD, depression, and anxiety by potentially resetting neural pathways and modulating neurotransmitter levels.
Mechanisms Behind Ibogaine's Effects
While the mechanisms of ibogaine’s therapeutic effects are still being unraveled, its capacity to unearth repressed memories and facilitate lucid, dream-like visions suggests it facilitates communication between different brain regions. This can potentially allow individuals to process and heal from traumatic experiences.
Shared Journeys and Healing Insights
Many of our clients at Hope Rehab have shared their profound ibogaine experiences from Tabula Rasa Retreat. Through a combination of this deep psychological work and the holistic, structured support we provide, these clients often make remarkable progress.

Safety and Regulatory Landscape
While ibogaine is potent and promising, it isn’t without risks. Thus, it’s crucial for treatments to be administered under qualified supervision, like that provided at Tabula Rasa Retreat. Given the regulatory landscape in places like the U.S. and for us at Hope Rehab in Thailand, ibogaine remains illegal. Yet, clinics like Tabula Rasa Retreat exemplify the potential healing benefits of ibogaine when responsibly and ethically used.
A Vision for Integrated Healing
Our alliance with Tabula Rasa Retreat demonstrates our shared commitment to holistic and integrative healing. We believe that combining the profound insights from ibogaine treatments with our 12-step and holistic practices creates a synergistic framework conducive to deep healing and sustainable recovery.
In the tumultuous landscape of modern living, marked by both tremendous challenges and profound disconnections, there are anchors of hope and healing. We’re proud to collaborate with Tabula Rasa Retreat, merging ancestral wisdom with modern approaches, to facilitate transformation and renewed hope in the lives of many.
