Session Summary

The Substance Use Disorders (SUD) Community is hosting a webinar on the topic of ibogaine for detoxification and management of Opioid Use Disorder (OUD). Ibogaine is a psychedelic drug touted for its unique and robust ability to detoxify persons physically & psychologically dependent on opioids. However, ibogaine is regulated as an illicit substance in the United states and is associated with prolongation of the QTc interval, ventricular arrhythmias, and cardiac death. During the webinar, speaker Benjamin Malcolm, PharmD, MPH, BCPP will focus on the rationale for the research and development of ibogaine, the emerging role of spiritual drug experience in the treatment of mental illness and SUDs, the pharmacology of ibogaine, and existing clinical data on ibogaine for OUD.
