Storyline

David Graham Scott's 2004 film DETOX OR DIE documented how, with a single dose of iboga, he quit his drug addiction, inspiring others to do the same. Iboga has long been used in African religious ceremonies. Now the West promotes iboga for swift, painless withdrawal. Just how effective is iboga? In Holland David films addicts undergoing a long night of psychedelic detox, watched by an experienced iboga practitioner. One client collapses, ends up on life-support, and the provider is jailed. David begins to question the safety of iboga treatment. The film culminates with a nerve-wracking iboga session in London with the director himself administering the treatment! How does David justify involving himself so deeply in this controversial treatment? Is it the addict's perfect quick fix? Written by Anonymous

Part of a NL government campaign against Sara Glatt
20 November 2015 | by dhsparkmanSee all my reviews

Sara Glatt let this man into her home to film her Iboga operation, not knowing that he would depict her in a completely false light and misrepresent her work.

Ms. Glatt has been the subject of a smear campaign by the Netherlands government, with the support of several media outlets (obviously including this slander of a film), in conjunction with criminal charges filed against her of which she was acquitted by a jury.

Of course, this acquittal didn't stop the Netherlands government from continuing its campaign of government libel against her. She is the victim of governmental abuse because she tries to help people with a treatment that many of these addicts have claimed online has helped them make their lives new.

I've been to Sara's house too, and observed her in action live with her clients. She is a very caring and sensitive person, and the world owes her many favors for the work she has done, WHICH IS MISREPRESENTED IN THIS FILM. I have known her for over a decade, and never heard a bad word about her, outside of this film and the scandalous lies of the Netherlands government and its puppet media outlets.

So if you like baseless government-sponsored smear campaigns and lies, you will love this film. If you are like me, and despise lies and deceit, you will hate this film, and consult Sara's clientele and friends before you judge what she has accomplished.
