Experience the World’s Best, Medically-Based Ibogaine Treatment
Clear Sky’s luxurious, state of the art ibogaine clinic is staffed by an exceptional and experienced team of clinicians, scientists, psychologists, nurses, and support personnel.
Our founders are the only researchers in history ever granted FDA approval for clinical testing of ibogaine on human, drug-dependent individuals within the United States (FDA IND 39,680).
Clear Sky Recovery is a residential, medically-based, fully certified and registered, clinically-managed ibogaine treatment and drug detox program in Cancun Mexico.
Our ibogaine treatment is all-inclusive, and your stay at our detox facility will typically last for one week (7 days).
Ibogaine provides a safe, effective, and gentle detoxification from a wide range of opioids such as heroin, methadone, buprenorphine (Subutex or Suboxone), and OxyContin. Ibogaine is extremely effective for stimulants like cocaine and methamphetamine, as well as alcohol.
We’re very familiar with the pharmacodynamics of ibogaine and its interaction with a given molecule (such as heroin, cocaine, methamphetamine, etc). We structure our ibogaine treatment protocols based upon the best possible response to a given situation. Each treatment episode is custom-tailored and optimized for the medical condition of the individual receiving ibogaine treatment.
In some cases where a patient is heavily addicted to narcotic analgesics such as OxyContin, methadone, or buprenorphine (Subutex or Suboxone), this may affect treatment duration and require a slightly-longer stay at our facility.
Detox in a Luxurious, Safe & Peaceful Environment
Our medically-based ibogaine treatment clinic is conveniently located approximately 20 minutes north of Cancún International Airport. Casa de la Playa is a luxurious and spacious, 8 bedroom oceanfront property which has been converted into a small, private hospital, located in the beautiful Women’s Island Shore (Playa Mujeres), Punta Sam resort area of Cancún.
We are fully staffed and equipped to handle all emergencies on-site. You will experience Ibogaine treatment in a private room, which has been designed to provide the perfect fusion of a fully equipped, cutting-edge ER offering all the latest medical technology, in a comfortable and extremely safe environment conducive to deriving maximum benefit from your ibogaine experience.

Including: in-room video and audio systems, high-speed internet access, swimming pool, cook, and 24 hour concierge service. If you have any special needs — dietary or otherwise — notify us beforehand, and we’ll make arrangements to ensure your comfort while receiving ibogaine treatment at our facility.
- Withdrawal Symptoms Alleviated 98%
Ibogaine treatment is remarkably effective in alleviating upwards of 98% of all withdrawal symptoms associated with opioid and stimulant withdrawal, as well as significantly reducing post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS). Following ibogaine treatment you will not be sick or experiencing an overwhelming compulsion to do whatever drugs you were physically addicted to prior to treatment.
We treat adults suffering from drug dependence issues. Ibogaine treatment is equally effective in providing relief from poly-substance abuse disorders.
However, we cannot treat underage patients.
Aside from our overall exclusion criteria, please keep in mind that ibogaine is an experimental medication for substance-abuse, and should not be considered a first-choice candidate for individuals who have not tried other more conventional methodologies to address their problems.
While Ibogaine treatment is the most effective and painless, drug detoxification that currently exists; it is not a suitable treatment option for every individual.
You may not be a good candidate for ibogaine treatment if you have an active disease affecting the heart, lungs or liver.

Addiction is Not a Life Sentence
We’ve been treating drug-dependent individuals since the 1990s. Our experience has taught us that the best way to ensure a successful outcome post-ibogaine treatment, is to remove the person from the people, places, and things associated with their drug use.
This has a dramatic impact on reducing external stressors and triggers, and provides people with the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in treatment and learn new coping skills for staying sober upon returning to their home environment.
We utilize a wide range of techniques to empower each client to attain their goals. We specialize in dual-diagnosis and patients with co-occurring underlying conditions such as Bipolar Disorder, PTSD, panic and anxiety disorders.
Our focus is on providing every client with a solid foundation for going back out into the world and their lives, with the tools necessary for making better choices. Addiction is not a life sentence; we nurture personal empowerment and freedom, not a perpetual disease model.
Ibogaine Treatment Articles
Is Ibogaine Treatment a Scam?
In this blog post, the Clear Sky team addresses the idea that ibogaine treatment is a scam—a rumor that less ethical clinics whose treatments aren’t based on the science of ibogaine have caused. Ibogaine treatment doesn’t instantly “cure” drug addiction; instead, it acts as an addiction interrupter in the brain, giving you a chance to put a recovery plan into place without the pain of detoxing. And while it’s not 100% effective, nothing is, especially the 12 step alternative.
The post provides the facts and points out that while ibogaine therapy isn’t an instant, magical cure, the interruption therapy it provides when administered by the right team is the next best thing for many patients.
Ibogaine For Addiction: Does it Really Work?
This post breaks down how ibogaine works to treat addiction in the context of the major heroin epidemic that is currently taking place in the United States. It describes the early years of ibogaine including its traditional uses and discovery by doctors later in history.
Next the post places ibogaine treatment into the context of the era of psychedelic drug use in the US in the 1960s, and the “War on Drugs” that followed. It was this drug war that dried up research funding for innovative treatments such as ibogaine therapy, a move that benefitted Big Pharma more than anyone else. Finally, the post describes how ibogaine works as a form of interruption therapy, and why the Clear Sky program is unique.
Why Ibogaine Treatment Gets a Bad Reputation
This article focuses on the 5 biggest reasons that ibogaine therapy has sometimes gotten a bad—and unfair—reputation in the media. First, a few unsafe ibogaine treatment centers have hurt the reputations of everyone else in the field. Second, a small number of unethical treatment centers have made outrageous claims, which makes any ibogaine treatment center seem equally foolish. Next, because ibogaine is a psychedelic drug, it has an automatic stigma applied to it in the context of the American War on Drugs.
Furthermore, ibogaine lacks FDA approval, something that worries many American consumers. Finally, because pharmaceutical companies have a lot to lose if addicts stop using things like suboxone and methadone, they malign ibogaine therapy.
How to Pick the Perfect Treatment Center
This post provides a basic guide to picking the right treatment center for you and your recovery needs. It explains how to clarify your needs and priorities first, and then describes the importance of both medical and psychological expertise in addiction treatment and recovery. Next, the post details the critical need for evidence-based approaches rather than unproven methods. After that, the post goes on to describe the ways that amenities offered by a treatment center can aid in your recovery.
Next, the article urges consumers to check into the background and specific approaches of any clinic they consider and discusses the issue of cost. It then goes on to highlight safety statistics and testimonials and encourages consumers to review both. Finally, the post urges potential patients to inquire about privacy at treatment centers.
America Tonight: Ibogaine, a Cure for Heroin Addiction?
This special report video tells the Clear Sky Recovery story. It focuses on a patient, Paul O’Heron, who has successfully recovered at Clear Sky. It then provides a detailed account from Dr. Deborah Mash, the neuroscientist whose groundbreaking research forms the basis for ibogaine treatments all over the world. Finally, the piece introduces the viewer to Dr. Alberto Sola, the medical director who runs the Clear Sky facility in Mexico.
Mash provides some of the history of her research and work with ibogaine. She describes the difficulties inherent to funding research against the will of the pharmaceutical lobby and shares her hopes for more acceptance of the treatment in the future. The viewer gets a glimpse of the history, the science, and the culture of Clear Sky Recovery.
The Clear Sky Ibogaine Treatment Process [Infographic]
This infographic provides a step by step look at the Clear Sky Recovery experience, and details what a potential patient can expect from their time at the clinic. On Day 1 the patient goes through the welcome process, orientation, and checks into the facility. On Day 2, the patient sets their intentions, receives a medical assessment, and prepares for the ibogaine.
On Day 3, the patient receives the flood dose of ibogaine under medical supervision. On Day 4, the patient processes the experiences from Day 3 with the help of a therapist. Day 5 brings the follow up ibogaine booster. Day 6 is reserved for aftercare and planning, and Day 7 is the third and last ibogaine dose and medical assessment. Day 8 is the day to return home.
The 5 Stages of Addiction Recovery
This post details what the addiction recovery process is like, and what patients can expect from the process and themselves. It introduces the concept of recovery and emphasizes that each person’s journey is unique.
Next the post describes the 5 stages that most patients experience, as they were described by psychologists in the book, Changing For Good. Stage One consists of pre-contemplation, awareness, and early acknowledgement—a time before the addict actually stops using, but the idea of recovering starts to grow. In Stage Two, contemplation, the recovery idea is taking hold, and the patient considers how their behavior affects others.
In Stage Three, Preparation, the addict has taken one or more positive steps toward recovery which the post describes. Step Four, Action/Early Recovery, is intimately connected to the Clear Sky experience, as the post details. Finally, Stage Five, Maintenance, is about keeping the recovery you fought so hard to achieve.
The post closes by discussing ways to help family and friends through the recovery process.
Ibogaine Treatment and Early Recovery
This post challenges the notion that addiction is a lifelong illness and that relapse is inevitable. It describes the old-fashioned mindset that characterizes the addict as someone with a progressive disease who will inevitably pick up again and again.
Next the piece touches upon the beginning stages of recovery, the problems the addict faces, and some of the reasons people who abuse substances choose to recover. At this point, the post introduces ibogaine therapy, and explains why embarking on this treatment regimen is like pushing a fast forward button. It closes by describing next steps after fast forwarding through pain and needless suffering.
Finding Your Path with Ibogaine Treatment
This article describes how and why patients decide to try to break through the cycle of addiction with ibogaine. It discusses how most traditional rehab programs have been scientifically proven to be ineffective, including faith-based and 12 step programs, and analyzes those failures.
Next the piece discusses methadone maintenance and the use of buprenorphine, or subutex and suboxone. In essence, the article argues, this kind of treatment is substituting one addiction for another, and the user ends up with many of the same problems. These substances may be legal, but the user is certainly not free of addiction.
The post concludes that ibogaine treatment is neither of those options and is both far more effective and proven by science.
Ibogaine Treatment Preparation and AfterCare
This post breaks the entire ibogaine treatment experience into three segments: preparation, the treatment experience itself, and aftercare. As the piece discusses preparation, it explains exactly what ibogaine treatment is, and how and why it works.
Next the post describes what the actual treatment experience is like for patients. It provides details about how long patients feel the effects of the ibogaine, what it feels like, and how they should expect to feel both during and right after treatment. It also emphasizes what not to expect; for example, the treatment can’t rewrite history or erase past wrongs.
Finally, the post covers aftercare, which is absolutely essential to succeeding with ibogaine therapy. The article explains why aftercare is so important, and the type of planning patients need to do to stay sober.
