Drugs, Inc: Hallucinogens

93

A Drugs, Inc. episode from the second series, in 2012, which focuses on hallucinogenic drugs like Ibogaine and Ayahuasca which are touted as having healing properties for mental and physical health problems. We meet a man named Rob, a former Wall Street trader turned ‘healer’, who created a free clinic to administer Ayahuasca to trauma patients before things got out of control on his own trip.

Also featuring is Dimitri, a former heroin addict who got himself clean by using Ibogaine. He now helps other heroin addicts get clean by administering the drug, but it comes with some serious side effects and a risk of death with a mortality rate of those undertaking the treatment of somewhere around 1 in every 300. Other great documentaries about Ibogaine include Detox or Die and Ibogaine: Rite of Passage.
