Can a root that grows in West Africa successfully treat heroin addicts and break the cycle of addiction? Ibogaine is a derivative of the West African root Iboga; its properties have recently been reported as an effective treatment for drug addiction. The documentary follows Dave, a former stockbroker whose life has spiraled out of control due to heroin addiction. A one-time millionaire, he is now reduced to petty theft as a means to supply his habit. Desperate to get help, Dave travels to Mexico for the Ibogaine treatment. Facing the Habit is an intimate look into the life of an addict, as Dave's life is revealed before, during, and after the treatment. Please visit the Facing the Habit site for synopsis, news, stills, trailer, and bio. Thank you!
Because drug abuse is a persistent and growing form of slavery in America, the Ibogaine Walk, from New York to Washington, D.C., will begin in Manhattan on Labor Day, in view of the Statue of Liberty, the symbol of freedom on the base of which are inscribed these appropriate words:
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door." _________________ http://befrielsen.googlepages.com
