Emotions hit us hard in recovery and often become the reason for relapse when professional aftercare is not provided. Post-Ibogaine therapy is about developing new coping mechanisms that help us to process challenging experiences without resorting to drugs and alcohol.
Perhaps the most rewarding part of our aftercare is sharing ability to experience joy without intoxicants. At Living Clean Ibogaine we've noticed that patients respond remarkably well to a therapy that includes re-engagement with life's natural joys and adventures. Yesterday we climbed the Aztec Temple of Jaguar and Eagle (one of Mexico's most cherished sacred sites), walked the magical and ever surprising streets of Malinalco. Difficult emotions hit us hard in recovery. But they also present an opportunity to develop new coping mechanisms without resorting to the old familiar "fight, flight or drugs" responses. Learning takes time and genuine celebration of every step. As always, loving care and self-acceptance make the change possible.
