    “This was by far the best experience of treatment I’ve had, from the minute I walked in the door the staff made me feel so comfortable and at home. I’ve never been catered to and treated like such royalty. Sandra, Luis, Gilberto, Heidi, Claudia I give a special thanks to but also the rest of the staff was great. I cant even explain how awesome everything was so ill leave it at that. Thank you everyone. “

    “When I came to Crossroads I was terrified of what I was getting into. The second Marco picked me up and then I met the staff, my anxieties were relieved.

    Physically, I was dead. That’s the only way to describe my entire mindset, physically and mentally. Today, I am alive in a way I have never been. Life is beautiful again, and I have the staff at Crossroads and iboga to hanks for that.”

    "All i can say is, ibogaine and the 5-MeO-DMT gave me everything i mentally needed to kick my drug dependencies. The caretaking staff was wonderful, especially Gaby, Luis, Gilberto. The therapy staff (Anny) was the most helpful out of all. Being able to open up and talk about my emotional trauma was the most healing aspect of all my experience, you are wonderful and beautiful in every way Anny, thank you so much, and thank you Dr. Gomez, Dr. Polamco, and thank you Sandra for talking with me, and watching over me though the ibogaine trip. I truly feel you and i are kindred spirits, i hope one day to see all of you again, but not for treatment purposes though.

    Thank you for saving me Crossroads team!"

    What I learned here at crossroads ibogaine treatment center is something I will never forget. As I return to my normal life I will use the coping skills I've learned hear and I have really really learn to respect people in a different way . Looking at life in a linear way does us no good especially the society we live in in the culture we tried to reach for. As for the personal experience for the treatment it was definitely 1 of the most unreal and improbable emotions of my lifetime. I only have the staff to thank for the support they gave and for the things they taught me. Everyone at the house is always so nice and giving doctor Gomez actually could read my mind knowing if I felt better if I felt worse . Annie was the absolute root to my existence while I was here. Heidi was always there to make sure that I was fed well, any other staff was always so comforting and passionate I felt like I was in a home away from home. As far as the actual Ibogaine experience it was like I said a trip into the existential, the next day was extremely tough and I thought perhaps I've made a mistake doctor Gomez calmed me down Sandra was there always to take care of me and as the hours ticked by I realized that this was the exact right treatments for myself and for my addiction. For 8 years I've reached for a needle just to get through the day. Now this wonderful team is giving me already a week sober that is something that I never even dream possible a month ago .In closing I would like to speak about Dr. Martin Polanco. The work he doing with the Ibogaine experience could change the world and the addiction that we have. He is on the forefront of the breaking revolution away from addiction and inserting his patients into a realm of a beautiful universe. Thank you to everyone here and I will be sure to keep in touch .

    “I have to admit, when I just got into the car with a stranger and headed into Tijuana for testing, I had second thoughts. Then I met the cardiologist and I was given some medication to relax. Then off to the Crossroads center and when we arrived I completely felt at ease. Everyone was wonderful and the facilitator, Anny, made the pre-ibogaine schedule and post-ibogaine routine the best I believe it could be. I would recommend this treatment to any one. They saved my life.

    Love, Diane

    “I am so glad that I chose this facility for treatment. The doctors were amazing, food was good, the experience on ibogaine was scary, but the next day I thought about it and realized that was exactly what I needed to make sure I never come back. I will miss every one. You are the best!

    Wow, just wow,

    “Today is day 4 and feel amazing. No experience can compare to my last week. I was a heroin addict with a $1000 a day habit. And just as promised I woke up the nex day after treatment with no withdrawals. The ibogaine spirit is a powerful force and I feel reborn. Thank you thank you. If you are reading this before treatment, just relax and trust the process. The staff here are amazing and have treated me like family. Dr. Martin, Anny, Luis, Heidi, Dr. Gomez, Gilberto and my lovely, beautiful Sandra. I will remember and be grateful to you all forever. Much love and respect to you all. Thank you ibogaine spirit. I am reborn. “

    “Much respect to the staff and Dr. Martin. This was the second time I have come down for the ibogaine experience, and I got the answer I have been looking for the past 12 years of heroin/opiate dependency after multiple treatment centers and multiple attempts to get clean. I can say that ibogaine is the way to come alive again and actually be available to others. I really believe that it takes a serious hardcore addict to come and do ibogaine – and in the process of the ibogaine treatment, I am alive again. That’s the best way I can describe it. I came here with my bro from high school that started using with me, and we were able to get our lives back.

    Again, much love and respect Dr. Martin and staff.

    Trust that happens. These people know what they are doing. They really make you feel at home. The experience is unlike any other trip you will ever have in your life. The hospital is nice, the facility is nice. Enjoy your time here and just be. Do not be afraid to ask for what you want. Eat and drink and you will heal faster.

    Thank you all so much, I have a real start on life.

    My time at crossroads started with me feeling very anxious, worried about what was to come, if these people knew what they were doing, if they could truly accommodate my needs and deliver on what was promised. I was reluctant to surrender to the staff and let them take over, but once I did, I knew I was going to be okay.

    The staff never let me feel alone or that my concerns weren't important. They always had smiles on their faces, and offered sincere & genuine care at any sign of my discomfort. Once the Ibogaine was administered, I went into a restless state, but the doctors and nurses stayed up all night long to be a help to us and made the experience more at ease. The days after were a little rough, but that is expected for everyone. It takes a little while to get back to 100%. I felt a small amount of residual withdrawals afterward, but those soon went away with the boosters we were given. Now I feel completely normal. Completely free from the ball and chain that addiction and drug abuse had been in my life for seven years. All of the lost opportunities, time and money I'll never get back is behind me, and now endless possibilities for a positive future lie before me.

    I can't express enough how grateful I am for this experience. The facility is beautiful. The food is amazing. The care is so thorough and attentive, so understanding and kind. Heidi makes the best smoothies, and has such a generously kind and caring aura that puts you at ease. Luis never let me lift a finger, provided for my every need, and listened to my concerns about medications and whatnot. Anny was a solid, constant rock that we could look to for advice, guidance, insight, and understanding of the Ibogaine treatment process and for the tough days that came after. Sandra... Sandra was the amazingly calm & serene spirit during the Ibogaine treatment that soothed our souls, and her presence throughout it all made a world of a difference. She is meant to be doing what she's doing. Her massages were outstanding... & very relaxing. She was vital in providing a tranquil environment to best facilitate the treatment, and she knew what to expect & exactly what to say and how to care for us. Gilberto was awesomely understanding and always on top of our care. And Doctor Gomez, such a kind and comforting presence as well, was always looking out for our best interest and making sure we were comfortable and we felt okay. All of the staff went above & beyond any and all of my expectations. I am so grateful and extremely blessed to have gotten this second chance at life.

    Thank you, Crossroads, from the bottom of my heart, for helping me through this and giving me the opportunity, motivation and tools necessary to start on this new chapter of my life. To start fresh, begin anew. This treatment is something priceless, something so wonderful and rare that few addicts will have the opportunity to find out about let alone experience. But I was so lucky to have had such a positive and successful experience at crossroads, and I would shout it from the rooftops if I could, just to tell everyone how worth it it was, and if anyone has any apprehension to let that go and trust & have faith in these people and this process. Thank you again, to everyone! You have changed my life in ways you'll never know.

    Fortunately I did hear about ibogaine, from a doctor in Vancouver. At first I dismissed the idea, thinking that it was too good to be true. A psychedelic drug that would arrest my withdrawal and cravings and allow me one last chance to start over? It seemed far-fetched but I was desperate, and sometimes we need that desperation to become open minded and willing. I started talking with people who had done ibogaine before and the honesty in their voices. It was undeniable to say these ex-junkies were now full of life. I thought there may be hope for me too with this, somehow.

    Experiencing Ibogaine was a life changing and necessary event for me. It gave me a moment to turn everything off and open my mind to examine my thoughts, emotions and behaviors. The treatment at Crossroads allowed me to break destructive patterns and become addiction free. It is an experience I will ever forget. Great staff, great facility, highly recommended.

    Although my particular week has been filled with some thoughts and images I had rather not seen, I see the need for this “necessary evil” I had to endure. On the other side of that, waking up and not needing pills is a feeling I never thought I would get to experience. I am very grateful to the staff here for their warm spirits and eagerness to help us every step of the way. I am very happy I come to Crossroads and would advise anyone struggling with an addiction to do the same.

    Crossroads guest book note:

    Week of August 5th-12th

    J.P. Morgan
    My week here for the ibogaine treatment has been very rewarding and opened up my eyes to the true me. How I think and how to control my heart emotions to influence positive thoughts and feelings which produce positive actions. The Ibogaine journey was difficult at times and the boredom that comes the day or 2 afterwards is difficult to cope with but every day gets better and by Fri or Sat you will feel great. Knowing that I not longer have any cravings or symptoms of withdrawal. The staff here has been awesome and the food has been great although most of the time my stomach did not allow me to eat very much. I appreciate the truly heart felt care that this facility provides. They desire for me, us to succeed in life without any substance and attempt to heal my mind, body, and spirit to enjoy the wonderful life and be thankful of how blessed we are to be alive and well. I would recommend this beautiful experience to anyone and everyone whether suffering addiction or not. It opens up your mind and spirit to understand you and how you think in your heart and mind determine your outcome in life whether positive or negative. Negative feelings will come in a wave but if you can recognize them and focus your heart on positive, grateful, and thankful things the negative wave will pass and you will overcome to live a more happy and fulfilling life. A life worth living!!

    I’m a 31-year-old Ohio native who has been helpless in the throes of opioid dependency for 12 years. By the time I came to Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center, I had nearly a constant $200 dollars/day heroin habit. Though I’d done my homework about Ibogaine, I still had concerns that it might not work for me so easily, as my habit was so profound and had been going on for so long. To my utter delight however, it worked wonderfully. The first time I awoke here, Dr. Martin Polanco asked me if I was experiencing any withdrawal. I had to ponder this briefly, but the answer was, No! For the first time in years, I had awoken like a normal human, not needing to do a shot just to get out of bed. If it worked for me, I guarantee it’ll work for you. Expect some pretty nasty nausea coupled w/insomnia for a few days following the treatment, but remember anything is better than withdrawal! My deepest gratitude to you all.

    Words like “thank you” don’t begin to hold a candle to how I feel towards Dr. Martin Polanco and his team at Crossroads. Not only is Ibogaine therapy the miracle for opioid dependence, but either by luck or chance, or divine mercy, I ended up at THE BEST Ibogaine clinic in the world. The safety, compassion, empathy and immediate love I felt from this group was extraordinary! I’ve had a very difficult time battling my addiction. I’ve been to 12-step treatment five times, once for a year, and before I got to Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center, I was in and out of detox six times within a two month period. If you are ready to end the war and take your life back, simply do this. Give one week to end the hell you have called the world. Also, in my opinion it is important to remember the first 12 hours after Ibogaine hurts a little. But Dr. Polanco said, “Tomorrow morning you will feel the miraculous change that Ibogaine gives!” I didn’t believe him, but sure enough, the next morning I awoke feeling like I had never even done opiates before! Trust these people, they know what they’re doing. I swear on my life—my brand new life.

    I am the mother of a heroin addict and I was literally at my wit’s end. I sent my daughter to rehab two times and within three weeks she was back using again. So I watched several videos and went online to do some research about Ibogaine, because I had heard a few people talk about it. I found some Ibogaine treatment centers and decided to check out Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center. My daughter and I took a trip down to Rosarito Beach because I had lots of concerns. The staff was absolutely wonderful and the facility was more beautiful than the pictures on the internet. I was able to talk to my daughter every day on the phone and that really set my mind at ease. My daughter is amazed at the fact that she has no desire for heroin at all. It is so amazing to me too! All I can say is thank you so much for saving my daughter’s life.

    At first I didn’t believe that treatment with Ibogaine could cure my opiate withdrawals. I had doubts even a few days into the treatment. For anyone who is new to Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center, my advice is to just keep going. It gets better every day! I feel like a new person! This was an incredible experience, so take advantage of it. Thank you so much to Dr. Martin Polanco and staff—you all will hold a piece in my heart, and I appreciate your kindness in helping me. I wish I didn’t have to leave, though I am excited to start my new life!! I feel so privileged to have come to such a fantastic clinic.

    I came to Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center in such doubt and at my rock bottom. I had a $100-300 a day IV Columbian powder (china white) heroin habit. I was so sick I thought I was literally going to die. Even the doctors said I was one of the worst cases you had ever seen. However, after Ibogaine, and three days in fetal position, my brain started to reconnect and I was able to function. I wanted to leave but didn’t; even days after the treatment I felt horrible and was convinced it hadn’t worked! But this treatment was my last resort, and for the last several days, including today, I’ve felt great. Thanks you all for taking care of me during the worst days of my entire life with such compassion. You treated a stranger as if I were your own son. I couldn’t have done it without everyone here. If I can make it, anyone can. Thank you for a new start on life.

Now I have no cravings for oxys or cigarettes. I’m so grateful for my second chance. This house is full of so much love!! Thank you Crossroads Ibogaine for the best trip of my life!

    I know we all have our horror stories of how much and how many different drugs we’ve done, and the things we did to get them. But I want you to know that the rumors of what Ibogaine will do, and how good you will feel, are totally true, without a doubt. I’m amazed at how aware of my body I am now, after close to 10 years of being numbed. It feels so good I have a permanent smile on my face! Take advantage of all the great people here at Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center. I am learning new healthy habits, and I’m so excited to start my life with my inside matching the smile on the outside. Every day, something new and exciting comes to my mind. Enjoy your healing process—it’s better than anything in the world.

    After five years of heavy oxycontin abuse, my mind finally feels clear. I feel as though it has been reset. My time at Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center has been a wonderful experience—the most beautiful and terrifying experience of my life. Ibogaine took away my mental addiction, although after the treatment I still had minor physical withdrawals. Remember, years of abuse don’t go away overnight. Stay positive and every day you will feel better. Dr. Martin Polanco and the people who work here are amazing; they only want the best for you. They helped me a lot during the Ibogaine experience. I go home in the morning and I feel like this is the start of a new life. I’m very thankful I found this place.

    Every day is another chance to start fresh. This is something I have learned through my experience with Ibogaine. When you’re in the depths of depression, drug use seems the only easy way to make it stop, though it is merely a temporary fix. It’s a vicious circle of mental and physical pain that engulfs your entire life. This is my third Ibogaine treatment. I now reflect on where I went wrong before. It is very important that when you go home, you have an after-care plan. The first time I came here, I didn’t know what to expect. I came out of treatment very well—happier than I have been since I was a child. I was positive I would never use opiates again, or any chemical drugs for that matter. I went home strong and confident. Too confident. I thought,Well, I still need my friends, and so what if they use? I don’t want that stuff. Days, weeks, months went by, and I was still strong, until I had a bad day. And then because it was around I figured I would do it just once. If there is anything I have learned from 12 Steps, one is too many and a thousand is never enough. The very best advice I can give you is this: Ibogaine gives you a window to break the cycle, but it is your job to get after-care, as well as change your social network. Life is a roller coaster of ups and downs, and when you are so used to not dealing with it, to numbing yourself, it is hard to figure out ways to cope without drugs. But it is possible. Don’t get your true friends confused with the people you used drugs with. And finally, stay strong, stay healthy, stay happy. This is only about you and maintaining your sobriety! Thank you to the incredible Crossroads staff and special thanks to Dr. Martin Polanco for all of your patience and support.

    I was an addict for over 10 years and never thought I’d recover. But I was so unhappy, I couldn’t bear it anymore. My best friend first came here to Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center, and was convinced it worked. So I thought I would give it a try! I was scared at first, doubtful, and confused. After the treatment I was tired and lonely. But day after day went by, and now I feel great, and strong! Just give yourself a chance. It will work.

    At first I was really scared to do the ibogaine treatment. I didn’t think it would work. Shooting heroin was all I knew and the comfort was so great I wasn’t even 100% sure I wanted to be clean. After treatment at Crossroads, however, I’m shocked to say, that something really changed in me. I don’t want to shoot dope anymore. I can hardly believe that it’s even possible, but there it is. Thank you so much Dr. Polanco!

    Dear Dr. Silva and Staff,
    Finding Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center was the best thing that could have happened. Hacienda La Mision was the only rehabilitation program that fully met my physical and spiritual needs. The Crossroads Ibogaine Treatment Center staff is an amazing group of talented and supportive people who treat the cause as the effects of Oxycontin addiction. If you are ready to leave your addiction, do not wait, schedule an appointment today. It will be the best decision you ever make.

    • Dr. Martin Polanco and the entire staff at Crossroads are warm and amazing people. My experience with Ibogaine treatment is one I will carry with me all of my life. In my visions I met Cortez, Magellan, and Marco Polo, and came away with an understanding of the meaning of life. My advice is the following: trust the staff 100%. They are professionals. Surrender yourself and don’t resist—let the medicine do its work!
