The Avante Institute’s Innovative Approach to Addiction Treatment

It is well recognized that overcoming addiction is often one of the most formidable challenges that one will face over the course of their lifetime. Addiction practitioners around the world are continually searching for new and effective ways to treat addiction in effort of increasing the likelihood of helping patients to achieve long-term, sustainable recovery.

The Avante Ibogaine Institute in the Bahamas is a leading provider of entheogen-based addiction treatment programs that offer innovative treatment solutions for alcoholism, addiction, and associated mental health disorders. Let’s discuss how to overcome addiction through The Avante Institute’s self-identification process combined with our entheogen-based rapid detox treatment, and why Avante is the best clinic for alcohol and opiate addiction treatment.

How to Finally Overcome Alcohol and Opiate Addiction?

Far too often, patients arrive for addiction treatment desperate for guidance but challenged to accept responsibility or to command an energy of commitment and discipline toward approaching their recovery. Understanding the term “recovery” is crucial to the process of overcoming addiction. Recovery of the whole person includes how we view our lifestyle and behaviors, and how we identify improvements to our health and habits that support abstaining from drugs and alcohol.  

All addictive drugs, including alcohol and opioids, produce a pleasurable surge of dopamine in the region of the brain known as the basal ganglia. This area of the brain is responsible for controlling reward and balance. As substance use continues, these circuits adapt and scale back their sensitivity to dopamine, leading to a reduction in a substance’s ability to produce the euphoria that comes from using it. This increased tolerance affects the way that the brain adjusts to the frequent presence of the substance and, as a result, users often increase the amount of the substance to achieve the same level of high. Furthermore, when not using the substance, the user will become depressed and anxious due to the reduced response to normal dopamine levels.

The Avante Institute’s focus on recovery begins with a comprehensive rapid detox followed by identification work to uncover the reasons that we use and abuse drugs and alcohol. Is the addiction a result of an inability to deal with life stressors, insecurities, matters of esteem, fear, or trauma? Do we enjoy the feeling of being out of control, potentially as a means of not accepting responsibility due to clouded judgment? Are we simply addicted to being addicted?

This process of self-identification helps to uncover our authentic self; that is to say, who we are at our absolute core. The authentic self is the part of our individual self that is not defined by a job, function or role. Rather, it is the composite of all of their skills, talents and wisdom. It is all of the things that are uniquely theirs and require expression, rather than what or who they believe they are supposed to be and do.

This process of self-identification combined with our entheogen-based rapid detox treatment helps our clients to not only understand why they fall prey to alcohol and opiate addiction; but how to recover our whole person through the process of recovery.

What is Ibogaine and how does Ibogaine Assisted Detox Treatment work?

Ibogaine is an alkaloid derived from the Tabernanthe Iboga and Voacanga Africana shrubs, native to the Gabon region of West Africa. Ibogaine helps individuals through a process that begins by inducing a dreamlike state in the brain similar to the REM sleep cycle. This is where dreaming and memory consolidation occur.

As Ibogaine works in the brain, it upregulates the Glial Cell-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (GDNF), the Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), and the Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) in parts of the dopaminergic system. BDNF promotes the strengthening and growth of cellular neurons that form new neural connections in the brain, known as neural-pathways. This process modulates activity in the NMDA neurotransmitter system, which is involved in the learning and the unlearning addictive patterns. This is what is often referred to as ibogaines ‘reset’ or ‘reboot’ of the brain.

As a neuro-regenerative compound, ibogaine regulates and heals the brain’s dopamine system which has been shown to break addictive patterns to chemical substances including opioids, heroin, crack/cocaine, alcohol, methamphetamines, and nicotine.

Prior to attending ibogaine treatment for addiction, we encourage you to research clinics and their medical professionals and select a clinic with expert clinical technicians and safety protocols.
