Ibogaine in Venezuela

Youtube video from the Ibogaine conference in Washington, D.C.


Dr. Zulema Cendon is a director of the Venezuelan Society of  
Psychiatry and currently director of a public drug treatment center  
in Caracas. Dr. Rosalía Dávalos is Director of Casa De Reposo La  
Ribera, a privately run drug treatment center. They were in  
Washington, D.C. the weekend of February 15, 2008 to discuss the use  
of Iboga, an African rain forest plant touted as the source of  
Ibogaine, a promising drug for treating addicts.


The Venezuelan representatives attended three days of presentations  
on the use of Iboga in addiction therapy by psychiatrists,  
ethnobotanists, pharmacologists, entrepreneurs and the media. Besides  
Venezuela presenters came to D.C. from South Africa, Mexico, and the  
United States west coast to discuss recent findings by doctors,  
biomedical researchers, religious practitioners and drug treatment  
professionals, who have administered Ibogaine to nearly 5,000  
patients seeking relief from drug addiction.

The Ibogaine Conference culminated in the presentations of Dr. Cendon  
and Dr. Dávalos who shared their workshop with noted United States  
civil rights activist Dhoruba bin-Wahad who discussed how activists  
in North & South America could work together to humanely combat the  
scourge of addiction. The Venezuelan representatives promised the  
full support from their nation's drug treatment establishment in  
working to add Ibogaine to the treatment arsenal in the war on drugs.
