What is being recovered?
- In recovery, what are we ‘recovering?’
- What do you value most?
- Beyond ‘sobriety,’ what does a good, fulfilling life look like?
There is obviously no one way to answer these questions or one pathway through recovery, and ibogaine experiences can widen the discussion considerably.
A completely new view
The material that we work with is drawn from a broad range of sources:
- SMART Recovery tools
- Dharma Recovery wisdom
- 12 Step foundations
- Transpersonal psychology
- Psychedelic intergration
The result is an experience that puts you in contact with a range of useful tools and perspectives, as well as the support to carve your own meaningful path.
Breathwork in Recovery
“Breathwork” refers to any type of experience that intentionally aligns with the breath. During the course of the program we use a variety of different approaches to breathwork, including:
- Relaxation techniques,
- Pranayama or yogic breathing,
- Short-circuit or “trauma release” breathwork.
These practices help to provide a strong somatic (body-oriented) dimension to recovery work.
Who will benefit most?
Journey Recovery VIOP may not be a good fit for everyone. The program is designed for those who:
Have other strong support in their recovery. If you already have a place to live, a good environment, and other supportive people around you, an online environment can add several strong layers of support.
Cannot continue in-patient. Either you’ve already been through in-patient aftercare, you can’t afford it, you need to work or be with your family, or for another reason. It’s time to be at home, but you want to focus more deeply on recovery.
Can keep to a schedule. You don’t have a problem showing up on time, keeping up with tasks (this is not designed to be stressful!). You just need some guidance, tools, and to apply yourself to this next phase of your growth.
Are already in recovery. This program is designed as ibogaine aftercare. Even if you’re already well past your ibogaine experience, this is a strong way to reboot or dig deeper in your recovery path.
Need something new. You’ve been around 12 Steps or other programs, but are looking for a community that better understands non-conventional recovery experience. Journey is flexible, and offers something off the beaten path.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
We understand that many participants in our program have busy lives that include jobs, families, or school. The program requires a commitment of about 9 hours per week on average, so you can balance a structured recovery plan with your other commitments. The program runs for 8 weeks.
The program makes use of 3 systems:
- Zoom is a video conferencing platform that is used for all groups and private sessions. No account is necessary, but a download is required.
- Teachable is online educational platform that is used for online exercises and group discussion of the materials. Account details will be provided.
- Acuity is used for payment and scheduling for the program and private sessions.
Teachable and Acuity are both accessible via modern web browsers or as mobile apps. The full content of the program can be accessed via desktop, laptop, tablet, or any other smart device including a mobile phone.
The full cost of the program is $1,200 for 8 weeks, the equivalent of $150 per week.
If this is the case it is recommended that you schedule the program to begin shortly before your scheduled experience so that the bulk of the program will be completed afterwards. This can be discussed in greater detail during your orientation call.
Journey is currently designed specifically for ibogaine aftercare. However, the majority of the program is general enough to provide recovery support for people using other psychedelic medicines, plant medicines, or who are simply looking for an alternative pathway in recovery. This can be discussed in greater detail during an orientation call.
If you are experiencing chest pains, difficulty breathing, or have a history of epilepsy or other seizure risk, please discuss this with us in advance.
Aside from these concerns, it is good to be prepared for the fact that some people experience:
- Tingling sensations;
- Muscle twitching or other physical sensations;
- Physical tension in limbs or extremities;
- Altered states of consciousness.
There is nothing necessarily wrong with these sensations. They can be a completely normal part of the practice. However, if they are uncomfortable you can regulate the intensity of the practice by modulating the intensity of your breathing.
Not necessarily. We do not provide rigid or prescriptive definitions of recovery, and some substances, such as cannabis, psychedelics, and plant medicines can, in some cases, be useful tools in detox and recovery.
Many participants in our program also participate in Psychedelics in Recovery, a 12 Step fellowship for people who are using psychedelics as part of their 12 Step oriented spiritual program. This is not required.
If you have any concerns about whether your personal path in recovery will be accepted in this program, lets discuss this during an orientation call.
