A qualitative study about treatment of substance abuse with the natural remedy Ibogaine (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att undersöka om naturläkemedlet Ibogain kunde vara en bra behandling för missbruk. För att kunna besvara detta har kvalitativa intervjuer genomförts med fyra personer som genomgått Ibogain-behandling och en psykolog/psykoterapeut på en beroendeklink, Lars Lundell. Utöver dessa intervjuer har en klinik i London besökts som utför Ibogain-behandling. På kliniken gjordes en observationsstudie av behandlingen, samt intervjuer med klinikchefen Dr Brackenridge och en av hans patienter, i uppsatsen kallad Will. Studiens perspektiv utgår från informanterna och våra egna observationer om Ibogain-behandling. Intervjufrågorna har bildats utifrån dessa 3 frågeställningar:

1. Hur går en behandling tillväga rent praktiskt?

2. Hur har livet påverkats av Ibogain-behandling?

3. Vilken syn har informanterna på Ibogain-behandling?

I analysen söktes gemensamma nämnare och skillnader i informanternas svar, uppdelat i de tidigare nämnda frågeställningarna. Sedan tolkades denna information med hjälp av litteratur, observationer och egna tankar.

I studien ges en mycket samstämmig syn på att utan Ibogain-behandling hade troligtvis inte informanterna varit i livet idag.

Resultatet visar tydligt på att informanterna upplever att de fått en mycket bättre livskvalité efter behandlingen.

Av de uppgifter som framkommit i studien anser vi att Ibogain är att rekommendera.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate if the naturally occurring substance Ibogaine could be a good treatment for substance abuse. In order to answer this question, qualitative interviews have been performed with five persons who have been subject to Ibogain treatment and one psychologist/psychotherapist at an addiction treatment clinic, Lars Lundell.

In addition to these interviews an Ibogaine treatment clinic located in London has been visited. At the clinic an observational study of the treatment was carried out as well as interviews with the responsible physician Dr Brackenridge one of his patients, named Will in this paper. The perspective of this study is substance abuse treatment with Ibogaine based on the informants experiences and our own observations.

The interviews have been formed based on the following three questions:

1. How is a treatment carried out?

2. How have their lives been affected by the Ibogain treatment?

3. What are the informant’s views on Ibogain treatment?

The analysis was made looking for similarities and dissimilarities in the informants answers, divided into the three previously described questions. This information was subsequently interpreted using literature, observations and our own thoughts.

The study shows that among the informants there is an almost unanimous opinion that without the Ibogaine treatment they would not be alive today.

The study clearly shows that the informants feel that they have a much better quality of life after the treatment. The conclusion of this study is that Ibogaine can be a successful treatment for substance abuse.
