SMART Recovery is a science based addiction recovery program that Experience Ibogaine highly recommends. SMART Recovery offers a positive and uplifting experience by focusing on personal successes, rather than on failures.
SMART works in the same way as many other programs by offering regular meetings with members, face to face, and offers comfort and stability for those on the path to recovery.
Ibogaine treatment is only the first step in the process of living a successful, drug-free lifestyle. The combination of Ibogaine treatment and SMART recovery will give any addict the tools to accomplish their long term goals. Treatment without a long-term social foundation significantly reduces the chances of a successful outcome. SMART offers guests a way to empower themselves and their future.
Our treatment program offers the foundations of Ibogaine treatment. We also strongly encourage our guests to develop an aftercare plan that includes attending regular meetings. Whether they choose SMART recovery or not is up to the individual.

“I obtained my B.A. degree in Addiction Psychology from the State University of New York (SUNY) and Excelsior University. After graduating I worked for 2 years in a recovery center for teenagers struggling with addiction and suffering from traumatic childhoods.
“I had the awesome opportunity to live in a Zen Buddhist Monastery; here, I learned meditation and I am now able share this experience with others. It is of great importance to get back in touch with your spiritual life after going through addiction.
“I also think it’s very important to rebuild not only your mind but your also your body after dealing with addiction; that why I disciplined myself to become a Master Fitness Trainer and an equestrian hunter/jumper and work with people in Equine therapy using horses to build self confidence and passion for living.
“I find it very rewarding to be able to work with people who are looking into Ibogaine and help them find the best treatment for them. I specialize in assisting patients develop their aftercare project. It’s not easy learning to adjust to a new world when being sober, but you can be successful at it if we work at it. I believe in SMART RECOVERY a self empowering recovery support method based on a scientific research rather than traditional 12 steps.
“I have also experienced Ibogaine myself so I can fully relate to what Ibogaine treatment is like.”
