My name is Aeden Smith-Ahearn.
I was a heroin addict (amongst other drugs) since my teenage years. My parents spent loads of money shipping me all around the country to different rehabs–none of which actually worked long-term. I would get a couple of months clean then somehow end up neck deep in addiction, not knowing how I got back there.
It was cyclical.
The time came where my parents suggested Suboxone or Methadone. I had seen how it was a lifelong crutch for friends, and that getting off of that seemed equally impossible. Out of desperation, and intensive internet searching, I came across Ibogaine treatment. At this point I had surrendered to the idea that if it works, great! If it doesn’t, it doesn’t, but I’ll give it a shot.
I came to Mexico in November of 2012 very uncertain and skeptical, but I tried to keep an open mind. My parents worried for me so much–they can only take so many years of my abuse towards myself and them. My dad told me this was my last chance. That scared me. I needed to make this work.
So, I applied for treatment. My medical screening came back, and I was qualified. I was on my way to Mexico!
I began the Ibogaine heroin treatment the same day that I arrived in Mexico. I was nervous.
The medicine gave me visions about my life and who I was as a person. Stuff I didn’t want to look at or acknowledge and accept. It showed me how I treated myself and those closest to me. I could begin to see what I was running from and trying to mask with drugs. Things that I’m still changing in myself to this day. I felt so awful about what I had done with my past, but at the end of my experience the medicine told me that, even after everything I had done to my family and myself, there was a second chance.

When I got out of bed the next day the sun was up. The ocean was there just staring at me. It was beautiful. The world, which I was numb to, was visible again. I became so grateful for everything in my life–to have a family and friends, to have food and a roof over my head, just to be alive. These were things I was taking for granted.
I felt like a new person, or the person I was before I was torn apart by drug addiction. And most importantly, I didn’t have any withdrawal symptoms! I decided going home was not the best option for me early in my recovery. So, I went to another clinic for aftercare where I helped out, got more acquainted with myself and others who had completed Ibogaine treatment.
Eventually, I decided Mexico was the best place for me. Before I came to Mexico I was worried about crime and feeling unsafe. But it wasn’t the violent place I thought it was. I got an apartment and soon after started working with Ibogaine patients. That’s become my entire life now. Before I was just a selfish person, taking and taking. Finally, this was my chance to give back.
I’ve worked with some 1,000+ patients in my time here. Ibogaine works. You could call it Mother Nature’s miracle. A healthy dose of skepticism is a good thing. I want you to have your own understanding of what Ibogaine can do for you.
