Ceiba’s Mission Is
To improve the quality, sustainability and accessibility of iboga- and ibogaine-assisted therapies.
Ibogaine is an extract of Tabernanthe iboga, a perennial shrub that is endemic to central West Africa. It has numerous health benefits including drug detoxification, neuroregenetive repair, and improvements in mental health and mental clarity. We provide information resources and funding, including healing grants that help place ibogaine treatment within reach for people who can benefit the most.
“Any person who is addicted to drugs who wishes to be free of that addiction shall be able to have that choice.”
– Howard Lotsof
Ibogaine will not solve systemic issues, but for some people it can make a difficult transition possible.
We understand that issues faced by people who use drugs are complex, and that, for many, abstinence is not desirable. Decriminalization and safe supply are top harm reduction priorities. We also believe that the ibogaine experience is sacred, and must not be approached coercively.
Ceiba provides support for those most in need, who wish to make the journey but would otherwise find it impossible.
We work in partnership with harm-reduction services and drug user associations.
Through our partners we provide a limited number of:
- Accessibility grants for individuals, which completely cover the cost of transportation and ibogaine treatment.
- Training programs and other resources for community-oriented medical teams.
Many people who use drugs have benefited from ibogaine-assisted therapies.
Ibogaine is an efficient and humane way to transition away from opioids, amphetamines, alcohol and other substances. It also has other medical and psychospiritual benefits that can help improve quality of life.
- Ibogaine is a psychedelic therapy.
- Ibogaine helps with detox, and is not a maintenance drug.
- Ibogaine requires preparation and planning.
- Grants cover treatment with trusted medical teams outside of Canada and the US.
