[Ibogaine] University of the streets

Hallo all

I agree with Howard.  At the time of giving the information, (around Feb 
06), it was correct.  At that time I have treated around 30-40 persons only, 
at their homes or in hotel rooms.

Subsequently, however, a lot has happened and the clinic was started and 
expanded, another center was trained to do treatments, and the number of 
treatments in only one facility is in excess of 200 to date.  The other 
facility has also done more than 100 treatments.

Kind regards
