Opiate and xanax painless detox
...for some reason it cut my comment short?! But do you know of anyone that the Imogaine worked for?? I must check into these herbs, though not sure if they are legal in Europe. But thanks for your post really honest and informative...keep up the good work on getting to the place where you need to be :)

Do you know of anyone whom the Ibogaine was actually a successf
