On July 13th 2009, was born.  We are quickly moving towards 15,000 views in just over one year.   Not bad for a busy dad  fed up with the whole reality of drug addiction and the impact it has had on my family and friends.  I think one reason so many Americans are blind to the horrendous impact of addiction is partly the same reason folks are blind to many other big problems.  Americans are just burnt out with the magnitude of it all.  I will never say we don’t care.  Like any burning issue,  it is the flame of caring and wanting to make a difference that keeps people listening and transforming indifference into compassion.   One day the disease of addiction will be rightly recognized as a legitimate medical condition along with all of its parallel indications of mental anguish.  Many addicts are afflicted with  bi-polar, depression, anxiety dis-order and other conditions that are  very under diagnosed.  The tools and minds are there.  Once the American body follows, we will have it licked.  Keep listening. Keep talking.   Stay on fire.

“…Ibogaine, a brown powder derived from the African Tabernathe iboga plant, has intrigued researchers since 1962, when Howard Lotsof, a student at New York University and an opiate addict, found that a single dose erased his drug cravings without causing any withdrawal symptoms…”  That is the claim and as evidence shows; it works; just not in the U.S.  yet, at least legally.  A drug addict can get legal Ibogaine treatment in Mexico.  The Villa Serena Medical Center and the Ensenada Ibogaine Program both offer treatment  in Mexico.  Here’s some links to learn more.   Fighting Drugs With Drugs…explores resistance in the U.S. to Ibogaine . is an informative link base in the UK.  Lastly, the Brooklyn based website; The Ibogaine Dossier is one other cyber site to look at.  links by Jon R.
