ABOUT US

Ambio’s clinics have become centers for research and the cultural introduction of ibogaine therapy. Our founders have a combined 40+ years of experience leading our field in a variety of ways, from the programs that we offer, to training and sustainable medicine sourcing. We run a variety of programs at several locations, and can address a wide range of concerns, including drug detoxification and addiction recovery, traumatic brain injuries and emotional trauma, neurodegenerative conditions, pain, and other concerns. We also work with many who are interested in approaches to psychological optimization amongst high performance special forces operators, professional athletes, executives, and artists.
