Since the 1960s a disparate group of scientists and former drug addicts have been advocating a radical treatment for addiction - a hallucinogen called ibogaine, derived from an African plant, that in some cases seems to obliterate withdrawal symptoms from heroin, cocaine and alcohol. So why isn't it widely used?

It worked for Clapton, so why not.
 
There was also a study suggesting LSD to relief the psychological withdrawal sympthoms.
I guess Ibogaine is a double strike against the physical induced craving and for the long term mental health.
To split of one of both mechanisms may be not a good idea.
 
I was always taught two wrongs don't make a right...rewriting that mantra...phew, it's fundamentally a stretch for my imagination!
 
lsd will never relieve psychological symptoms ... yet albert hoffmann always persued to define the contrary ... taking a drug to fix a problem? well, that's all wrong anyhow ...

STILL cannot believe BBC didn't x-ref this to the Caribbean and to Clapton.
