  1. STAY AWAY…FAR AWAY FROM THE GORDON CLINIC/ AKA. BEYOND IBONGAINE/ AKA. IBOGAINE UNIVERSITY! PLEASE DO NOT GO TO
    ANY CENTERS UNDER THESE ASSUMED NAMES. THESE “CLINICS” ARE ALL A SCAM RUN BY THE SAME MAN, IAN MACINTOSH. IF YOU LOOK AT THESE WEBITES, HIS PICTURE WILL SHOW UP ON ALL OF THEM AS A “COUNCELOR’. HE IS IN FACT ESSENTIALLY THE CHIEF, COOK & BOTTLE WASHER. HIS HAS BOGUS WEBSITES THAT PRETEND TO HAVE A ‘TEAM’ OF PEOPLE WORKING THERE AS WELL AS A DOCTOR. NON OF THESE PEOPLE EXIST THERE IN REALITY EXCEPT FOR ONE, ‘TAKA’, (WHO ACTUALLY WORKS AND LIVES THERE). HE RUNS HIS BUSINESS OUT OF HIS HOUSE. THIS IS AN UNETHICAL, ILLEGITIMATE PRACTICE. THE IBOGAINE IS NOT ADMINISTERED PROPLERLY. NOT SURE WHAT KIND OR EVEN HOW MUCH YOU ARE ACTUALLY GETTING, YOU LEAVE IN FULL BLOWN WITHDRAWLS AND BY THE TIME YOU GET HOME, IT’S TOO LATE…YOUR MONEY IS GONE AND YOUR ADDICTION IS BACK. HE IS A CON MAN WHO PREYS ON PEOPLE’S ADDICTIONS. IT WOULD NOT BE SURPRISING HE KEEPS OPENING UNDER VARIUIS NAMES TO DRUM UP NEW CUSTOMERS AFTER HE SCREWS PREVIOUS ONES. P.S. HE WILL CALL YOU EVERY DAY BEFORE YOU GET THERE, FOOLING YOU INTO THINKING HE IS SINCERE AND RUNNING A LEGIT BUSINESS. PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR IT, AS IT IS A LIE AND YOU HAVE BEEN THROUGH ENOUGH ALREADY.

    Charles Johnston, Ibogaine University Beware CHANGING NAMES AGAIN

    Charles Johnston, Ibogaine University Beware CHANGING NAMES AGAIN.
    They are now calling themselves Ibogaine beginnings or like that to avoid all the scams and problems they have.
    Johnston destroyed Safe Haven a clinic when he worked there and I went there, now he is doing the same to Ibogaine University.
    So many bad things.
    So, running and changing again.
    Please stay away at all costs.

    Do not go to Clear Sky Recovery. They are negligent and give you false hope.

    Do not go to Clear Sky Recovery. They are negligent and give you false hope…. Saying they can treat you a few days off Subs. Now I’m back home and am in full withdrawal and am suffering terribly. And to top it off no one from their 24 hour hotline will pick up.. So don’t waste your money. I’ve never wanted to use as bad as I do now.

    Ryan Jackson I can’t believe the treatment center told you that you only have to be off subs for a few days, that is total bullshit! Try a few weeks, no wonder you’re having this much trouble girl! That sucks!!!

    Mary Neal My main symptom is vomiting. I can’t hold anything in my system….not even saliva. I can deal with the other symptoms. I’ve tried taking phenergan but I can’t keep it down. I don’t know what to do.

    Mary Neal I’ve been told Kratom is addictive. Is that not the case? I wouldn’t take it unless I absolutely need it. I just have to wait for a head shop to open. But how am I going to keep it down?

    Ryan Jackson It can be addictive but just like anything else, taken in moderation you’ll be fine, find the dose that works for you then get yourself stake then begin to taper…I’d fight the recovery center you went to and try to get in for another treatment done the right way this time! Its total bullshit what they’ve done to you!!!

    I’d gladly pitch in for this situation. She needs some support asap. I want to help but I’m not sure what I can do. Could we get her somewhere supportive? Could we get her meds to help thru this?

    Michael Slater Wow. That’s bullshit, every provider I have worked with recommends being off sub’s for at least 3 weeks, you should have switched to an SAO during this period. I have heard many mixed opinions regarding Clear Sky’s program, please keep us updated rega…See More

  6. ayahuasca it is!!its become abundantly clear after just a couple hours online that the ibogaine treatment industry (cuz its sure not about healing or medicine and cuz Im too polite to call it a racket) at least insofar as the bigger and well known centers are all fraught w/ ***, in the best cases huge egos and in the worst cases purely profit driven fraud and, again sugar coating things a bit, less than full disclosure surrounding deaths.

    a dear personal friend of mine went to crossroads (aka more than a couple other names, why does a business pay and work to promote a name then abandon it and its subsequent name repeatedly? Its not cuz of their illustrious history of success and happy clients) and died during treatment, this occurred in 2014, Dr Polanco or however its spelled (and like the name of one business he’s been affiliated with he’s also done personal name changes) was unavailable when some of his family went down to retrieve the body and even after extending their stay in Mexico solely to speak to Dr Polanco, were dodged by him. its Mexico so records and documentation of anything medical including deaths are vague and sketchy at best, Ive heard from one person who was a patient that the claims of full time Drs and emt on site werent their first hand experience but to be fair I wasnt there myself and this person is not always trustworthy. Ive read interviews w/ the Dr and extremely flattering ones of him, not some competitor fabricating things, and even those have him contradicting his own words over and over.

    I cofounded the center, I joined the center about 2 years after they opened, it cant be both Doc, pick a side. its my baby I created the program, when asked about a death, I wasnt director then. Ive never been to the center nor met anyone involved with it. And clearly its a small little industry with a few players who are pretty dysfunctional familylike, at bare minimum theyre all quite familiar with one another and theres an intertwined work path with lots of them seemingly always ending very badly and confrontationally.

    I wouldnt trust a single review, either negative or positive, on these type of sites, because as clearly evidenced right here theyre chock full of the various business owners/ employees slandering one another and/ or posting fictitious things. I know ibogaine has some incredible gifts for some people, but at least as far as ANY center alleging ibogaine tratment ANYWHERE in Baja Mexico Id beg anyone debating it continue their search and be most diligent and healthily skeptical of anyone anywhere selling ibogaine treatment. At present Im pretty certain theres nowhere its actually legal, I dont mean in Mexico I mean earth. Not legal tho not criminal in some places, some that sorta look the other way for now, but as far as Ive ever heard or anything I could find in writing, nowhere is it fully above board and legal.

    Of course theres many valid medical treatments and drugs which arent legalized due to pharma interests and interference and a host of reasons none being that the drug or procedure isnt beneficial.But Im 100% convinced that at least in the baja ibogaine community the best of operators are still a huge risk and its terrifying to consider literally putting one’s life in their hands, do as you will

    More deaths covered up and more lies to family members who died at crossroads….Polanco is now using a clinic in TJ after his last death experience. Read the facts about Dr Polanco. He has been doing horrible treatments for over a decade. Ibogaine deaths in Martin Polanco’s clinic in tijuana call Claire Wilkins and if your nice to her she will give you all the juicy facts. She now owns and runs beautiful Pangea Ibogaine in Mexico. She got sick and tired of dealing with deaths caused by Martin Polanco – AKA ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————— Dr Martin AKA —Dr Martin Polanco—–AKA Transitions Ibogaine —–AKA Crossroads Ibogaine—- AKA Black market Donor Trader Google (Martin Polanco CNN) you will see his video about his organ donors trade he was working for. ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————— Read this below http://www.xcomplaints.com/complaint/fraud-c246.html After his ibogaine patients die he leave town, no evidence no witnesses. Do your home work before you go to him, ibogaine is deadly enough…. Polanco is a smooth talking killer has killed many poor desperate addicts. http://www.realitysandwich.com/iboga_insurrection_part_1 MAPS did a study with him and he almost killed the test subject! But other were not lucky! ———————————————————————————————————————————————————————— its become abundantly clear after just a couple hours online that the ibogaine treatment industry (cuz its sure not about healing or medicine and cuz Im too polite to call it a racket) at least insofar as the bigger and well known centers are all fraught w/ ***, in the best cases huge egos and in the worst cases purely profit driven fraud and, again sugar coating things a bit, less than full disclosure surrounding deaths. a dear personal friend of mine went to crossroads (aka more than a couple other names, why does a business pay and work to promote a name then abandon it and its subsequent name repeatedly?

  7. FBI man hunt for the notorious killer dr martin polanco, founder and killer of crossroads ibogaine center in tijuana and rosarito. this is the 6th name and clinic he’s opened. he has fled from one town to another and as of now if hiding in san diego. if you have any info please call the FBI we have made a case and he is wanted for my family members death. if you have any information please email me, there is a reward.

    • My name kyle Beickel i believe i have some information for you call me at 801-755-0544

    • I spoke with a ” counsellor” from Crossroads last night. He said he was in San Diego but when I checked the area code it was from Arizona. I also had my friends 25 year old son die in Mexico while in a ibogaine “center”. I myself wanted to possibly try this treatment because I’m grasping at straws trying to get off an addictive opiate drug called Suboxone. I don’t know if I can help you find the Dr. That is responsible for this terrible tragedy that happened to your family member .. The guy I spoke with named Chris sounded very legitimate but I am wary because of the repeated scams i have heard of from ibogaine clinics in Mexico & the death of my friends son.. With all respect for your loss

  10. DO NOT GO TO THE GORDON CLINIC OR ANY OTHER CLINICS RUN BY IAIN MACINTOSH!

    This clinic in Rosarito in Baja California is an absolute joke. As mentioned in the above complaint by ‘Christon Family’ it is true that Iain runs this ‘clinic’ within his own house, where he lives with his daughter and an African guy who works for him (Taka). The so-called doctor is barely around. Iain seems to keep his business a secret, since the neighbourhood thinks this big blue house is a hostel. No one living over there that I talked to even knew it was a clinic. Probably because that’s the way Iain wants it to be: he does not want anyone to know that he is involved in ibogaine treatment.

    Clients are given their dose of ibogaine before Iain has received their test results, which may lead to extreme dangerous situations as heart failure. He does not care about his clients at all and just leaves them laying in their bed until they miraculously ‘recover’, without giving them any guidance, let alone counseling. He makes clients pay 3000 dollars per week per person for this ‘treatment’, but still the clinic is completely broke. He calls with the client’s family all the time, but does not care about the wellbeing of his clients at all.

    Please stay away from here!!

  11. DO NOT GO TO THE GORDON CLINIC OR ANY OTHER CLINICS RUN BY IAIN MACINTOSH!

    This clinic is shady in so many ways that it seems to be illegal! At http://www.youngdudes.co/ the clinic (this big blue house) is even advertised as a surf/backpacker hostel!!!!!!!
