>>I have found the same as yourself whilst working with ibogaine. After some

>>support but as long as a year or more for others. Having been working in

>>results over some 25 individuals ageing from 21-56. Long term prognosis 
>>had increased to aprox. 75% staying clean, which actually increased after 
>>a year to closer to 90%.
>>The reason for this was person specific, and as I looked over my notes 
>>from the early consultations the clarity of this for the particular person

>>consideration. This result base has been recently published, but 
>>unfortunately only available in Italian at the moment.If anybody would

>>I use a transpersonal psychological model and training to aid this process

>>would give me a great deal of pleasure.
>>My conclusion is that without this long term pre and post perspective and 
>>facility, results are around about 40-50% success, simply because life 
>>skill, life knowledge are absent, there is nothing to fall back on, so 
>>really what can be expected.
>>What I have also learnt is that this support can be offered by telephone

>>used this service. What I would like to be able to do is offer this more 
>>widely, to people who are perhaps having treatment but lack the 
>>specialised support.
>>If any body has a response to this I would be very interrested. Some
