When most people research this addiction treatment therapy, one of the first questions they ask is, “How much does an ibogaine treatment cost?” This is a legitimate question. We’ll give you a straightforward answer.
How Much Does An Ibogaine Treatment Cost?
We understand that price is a major factor for those considering this kind of addiction treatment. In fact, the two most commonly asked questions by our potential clients are, “Does ibogaine really work in treating a substance use disorder?” and “How much does an ibogaine treatment cost?”
To answer the first question, YES! Ibogaine treatment works! This form of addiction treatment is backed by extensive research. By effectively resetting the brain’s neurochemistry to its pre-addicted state, this psychedelic medicine bypasses the withdrawal process and eliminates cravings for up to six months. After a one-week stay at New Roots, in conjunction with the recovery coaching we provide to help you ‘process’ your addiction, you can return home drug and alcohol-free with no cravings or withdrawals.
To address the second question with an honest answer, the price of an ibogaine treatment at New Roots costs approximately $7,500. From time to time, we might offer scholarships that can save up to 20% discount, those spots fill out quickly so we recommend you reserve your spot as soon as possible. In addition, we have partnered with a financing company to help pay for the treatment, visit our Financing Options page to learn more. We are based in Ensenada, Mexico and we do not work USA insurance companies so unfortunately, we don’t accept insurance. This must be paid out of pocket with private pay.
Our competitors generally do not like to disclose the cost of an ibogaine treatment on their website. We think it is a best practice to be upfront with this information and explain why we charge this fee.
Is An Ibogaine Treatment Expensive? We Think Not!
At first glance, some people may think that spending ~$7,5k out of pocket for addiction treatment is expensive. We do not agree.
For starters, it’s no secret that drug and alcohol addiction can be life-threatening. If not arrested, a substance use disorder can cause premature death. In fact, according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, more than 72,000 Americans died from illicit drugs and prescription overdose in 2017 – opioids took the bulk of those lives with 49,000 estimated overdoses. This translates to approximately 200 people who die PER DAY; our goal is to educate those who are not aware how serious this problem is. Those who are addicted to drugs like heroin, prescription opioids, crystal meth, cocaine, or alcohol are in very real danger when they get high or drunk. In no uncertain terms, if someone with a substance use disorder doesn’t get effective addiction treatment, it can cost them their life. We believe our ibogaine treatment cost is a very small price to pay when you can save a life from overdose.
Also – overdoses and alcohol-related fatalities aside – addiction causes a lot of negative situations that don’t result in death. Financial problems, legal challenges, family issues, employment difficulties, and health complications are just a few of the many circumstances that can result in the abuse of drugs or alcohol. In most cases, people who are hooked on addictive substances have spent a whole lot more than $7,500 getting high or drunk and paying for the consequences that come with this behavior.
In fact, many people have a $100-a-day heroin, cocaine, meth, or prescription opioid habit. Even an alcohol addiction can be very expensive. (At the very least, the average drug user or problem drinker spends at least $500-$1,000 per month on their substance of choice. And we’re not even talking about the many other costs involved with making intoxicated life choices!) When you put a substance use disorder in the context of dollars and cents, you will actually be SAVING money when you get an ibogaine treatment.
Finally, we think it is important to mention that the average cost of a conventional inpatient 30-day rehab program in the United States is $25,000. While insurance does cover this in most cases, people usually have to pay at least a couple of thousand dollars out-of-pocket.
And, keep in mind, as many as 85 percent of all people who complete a tradition 12-Step based residential recovery program in the U.S. relapse within the first year. Research shows that an ibogaine treatment provides lasting results after just one session – for a small fraction of the cost and time of a traditional rehab program.
Think about it this way – you are not SPENDING money on an ibogaine treatment. You are INVESTING in your own health, wellness, sanity, relationships, career, freedom, and hope for a new life. This is money well spent! In terms of dollars and cents, you are moving money you’d otherwise spend in illicit drugs or opiates towards getting a long lasting solution. When you evaluate the ibogaine treatment costs this way, you realize that this is a small investment for what you are getting in return.
What You Get When You Invest In An Ibogaine Treatment at New Roots

After preparation, the actual ibogaine treatment takes place in a well-respected, renowned local hospital. There are some risks associated with this plant medicine. We take every precaution to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our clients throughout the entire treatment process. Most of the cost of an ibogaine treatment is related to the hospital stay and associated medical expenses.

Beware of Cheap Ibogaine Centers That Offer You Inexpensive Treatment
When it comes to the cost of an ibogaine treatment, you don’t always want to get the “best deal.” There are plenty of centers in Mexico that prey on desperate people willing to do anything to find freedom from their addiction. They offer this plant medicine at a bargain price, attracting people looking to save money. Then, they engage in unethical treatment practices that can put your life at risk. This is unfortunate, but it does happen – and it happens more often than you might think!
Any ibogaine treatment should take place at a hospital under the watchful eye of a medical team. This is an absolute must. Cheap ibogaine treatment centers will cut corners to save money and forgo this vital part of the treatment process. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you take this plant medicine without medical supervision. If you do, you are putting your life at risk.
