Our counseling group is directed by our in-house clinical psychologist who has become a leader in the harm reduction community and performed valuable research in the field of Ibogaine for the association known as MAPS (Multidisciplinary Association of Psychedelic Studies). Working alongside him are handpicked counselors. These individuals have traveled many of the same roads, made the same mistakes as many of our patients. But despite all that they have succeeded in overcoming and will help you or your loved one do the same.
