ALENTEJO, Portugal, September 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
With addiction to stimulants and opiates (from heroin to OxyContin) at an all-time high, Tabula Rasa Retreat - https://tabularasaretreat.com is a unique rehab centre that uses plant medicine in a medicalised and holistic therapeutic setting.
Based in the serene surrounds of rural Portugal, Tabula Rasa Retreat's mission is to help addicts on the road to recovery with the help of the powerful addiction-interrupting ibogaine plant medicine.
Combined with pre and post treatment counselling, holistic therapies and the best techniques from conventional rehab (such as 12 step and CBT), Tabula Rasa Retreat, which is now considered as being Europe's leading ibogaine treatment centre, is dedicated to turning lives around and represents a new paradigm in addiction recovery.
Alvaro de Ferranti, the co-founder of the Tabula Rasa Retreat stated: "Iboga, a bark extract from West Central Africa, is the most effective way of interrupting addiction on the planet."
"This is because without the brain reset of ibogaine (the principle alkaloid of iboga), it's simply not possible for people to overcome addiction, meaning they are more prone to relapsing."
The retreat was set up by two Brits, Alvaro and Jade de Ferranti. Alvaro is a successful businessman and a former crack-addict (healed by iboga), whereas Jade is an EFT therapist. They are joined by Jeremy Weate, a British former globe-trotting consultant, who is the centre director.
Alvaro added: "We were all frustrated by the obsolete and evidence-free approach to drug policy and addiction back in the UK and moved to the more enlightened climes of Portugal.
"We didn't set up Tabula Rasa to get rich, but to prove that ibogaine-assisted therapy can be done right. Eventually, ibogaine will be an approved medicine around the world. Until then, we're focused on turning lives around and gathering a dossier of data showing the efficacy of ibogaine-based recovery."
Successful ibogaine treatment is not just about taking ibogaine. Pre-treatment therapy helps clients dissociate from their addiction, connect with their authentic self and take ownership of their recovery.
Tabula Rasa Retreat's aftercare programme is designed to ensure the best possible long-term results and the team of therapists and counsellors supports clients and helps them to adapt new habits, find their life purpose and establish healthy relationships.
