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.
