Invaluable insight into the knowledge of reducing conflict in relationships.
Alcohol is an addictive, societally endorsed, and easily purchased substance. Unfortunately, many people find themselves addicted to Alcohol, or struggling in a repeating cycle of using Alcohol and other drugs. Although the factors that lead a person into Alcohol addiction are complex, the fact that billboards advertise the addictive drug and the ease with which Alcohol can be purchased is a significant contributor.
For more than three decades well-funded government agencies have tried to end the addiction epidemic and failed. Every year more people overdose or end up in jail because of their addiction. Alcohol was sold as a most harmless social lubricant but turns out can be very dangerous and deadly.
Many addiction treatment options are available in the United States, but most who start addiction treatment for alcohol end up dropping out of treatment. Unfortunately, addiction treatment centers often teach addicted people to blame themselves when treatment doesn’t work, even though there is overwhelming evidence that traditional treatments tend to be ineffective!
As a result, rates of addiction to Alcohol have been growing and people experiencing addiction are left with few options.
However, there are effective non-traditional ways to overcome addiction. One very promising method for treating Alcohol addiction is Ibogaine. Ibogaine is a non-recreational psychedelic drug that recent research has shown is effective at reducing withdrawal symptoms post-treatment, reducing long-term cravings for Alcohol and drugs, and offering long-term psychological benefits.
Because of legality issues, many are traveling outside the U.S. to countries like Mexico to get this novel treatment for their addiction to Alcohol.

How it affects the brain.
Alcohol affects the brain by disabling many of the brain’s most important communication pathways. This is the reason a person experiences alcohol-induced blackouts where they cannot remember what they did or said after drinking a certain amount. Alcohol overdose, like many other drugs, kills a person by disabling the brain’s basic life support communication (i.e., breathing and heart rate control). Long-term alcohol addiction can significantly damage the brain and liver.
Much like other addictive drugs, Alcohol works on the dopamine receptors in the brain. Alcohol works by activating dopamine receptors in the brain’s reward center—disrupting this pleasure system of the brain. A healthy person produces dopamine naturally and dopamine gives them a reward for eating food, drinking water, or having sex. When someone starts using Alcohol they feel an immediate reduction in physical and emotional pain and an unnatural spike in pleasure.
As someone continues to use Alcohol their brain begins to adjust to get this pleasure from external sources. This brain adjustment is what leads to tolerance (needing more to get the same feeling), withdrawal symptoms, and cravings.
The good news is that the brain does heal, but it can take 6+ months without Alcohol for the healing to start and up to 5 years for the brain to fully recover.
Physical and emotional pain, fever, aches, chills, and vomiting, tremors, hot and cold sweats are all symptoms of Alcohol withdrawal. The seizures that severe acute Alcohol withdrawal causes can be deadly! ALWAYS seek medical attention when withdrawing from Alcohol! The agonizing symptoms can last for weeks or even months making it almost impossible to reach the 6 months of clean time needed to begin the healing.
Even worse, most traditional treatment centers will not provide any comfort medication to those experiencing withdrawal symptoms. Some are even locked away to needlessly suffer alone.
The statistics make it clear, that these traditional approaches do not work for most people struggling with addiction.
There are solutions available that are highly effective.
