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

A must see film for all of society.
9 February 2014 | by NoelDSee all my reviews

I saw a preview of this film recently and am glad I did. Following on from his very personal documentary 'Detox or Die', David Graham Scott's 'Iboga Nights' is a must see intimate portrait and emotional journey. of those trying to change their lives by using Ibogaine, the potential 'magic bullet' that could cure their addiction. As a viewer, I found myself rooting for all the characters in the film and hoping each would find a way out. I'm not going to say if they did or did not but this film raises the question of should we be doing more as a society and should we try new ways of treatment. Anyone involved in drug treatment and indeed those who are not, should watch this film.
