This grant provides travel, treatment, and integration funds to opioid addicts seeking treatment with ibogaine or other entheogenic protocols. Grant amounts are determined on a case-by-case basis and range from $1,000 to $15,000 depending on what portion of it you can raise yourself. We require that you raise at least $1,000 of the total amount by your own efforts. The grants are disbursed directly to the ibogaine clinic and integration provider selected from the approved list of Providers.
Iboga/ibogaine is a psychedelic plant medicine that can interrupt opioid addiction in a single treatment without withdrawal. Ibogaine is called the "addiction interruptor" because it actually restores the physiology (receptors and brain neurons) to a "pre-addicted" state. When coupled with an integration aftercare program it can be a powerful medicine for the opioid addiction that affects body, mind, and spirit. It needs to be administered with clinical and therapeutic care and customized detox protocols depending on which cocktail of drugs, legal or illegal, the person might be on. Ibogaine also requires an aftercare integration plan in order for the "interruption" to become a permanent thing. As one clinic owner says: "You have to change one thing: Everything."
Because ibogaine is classified as a Schedule One drug with "no medicinal value" it is off limits in the US and Canada, the home of the opioid epidemic. Many clinics have sprung up in Mexico, Europe, Africa, New Zealand, and elsewhere to treat opioid addiction with ibogaine. However, because it's not covered by insurance in the US/Canada, people cannot afford the cost of travel, treatment, and integration. Hence this grant. The FEAT grant was created as a part of the Iboga Saves campaign to end the opioid epidemic by Awake.net, a non-profit pending 501c3 corporation. To learn more visit https://awake.net
