Dutch Iboga Therapist Released from Custody, Pending Trial’s Conclusion

Dutch Iboga therapist, Sara Glatt, has been released from custody after spending over a hundred days in pre-trial custody. Sara is due back in court on the twentieth of this month, when a verdict is set to be made on whether or not she was responsible for the death of a man who was hit by a truck, 56 hours after she gave him Ibogaine.

Sara is an Iboga therapist, working in the Netherlands, who runs a clinic from her home. She works specifically with people who are addicted or going through some sort of dependency that they wish to break from. The man, who died, came to Sara’s house with his mother looking for treatment that could help him stop drinking alcohol. He was due for an operation and needed to improve his health. After spending ten days with Sara he left and 56 hours later he was hit by a truck.

“There is enough evidence that says that I am not like they [prosecutors  and mainstream media] say I am. There is enough evidence from the night that says that he was competent enough to buy a beer, use the cigarette machine, which needs a special coin to prove you are the right age. If he was really tripping he would not be able to do these things.”

Iboga treatment has been hailed as a miraculous cure for addiction because it helps, for example, to relieve cravings during periods of ‘cold turkey’ when people are coming off heroin. However, as she discussed on the Shroom with a View podcast 67,  which features an interview with Sara Glatt before she was arrested, it is the changing of routine, lifestyle, and habit that is the long lasting ingredient.

There are many success stories in Sara’s work and since her arrest last June, in connection to the aforementioned death of one of her patients, many people who have experienced Iboga under Sara’s roof have come forward in praise of her work.

Sara has appealed to the European Court of Human Rights over her pre- trial detainment on grounds that it has been unfair.  If all goes in her favour on the twentieth of November, Sara said she will be partnering up with an English psychoanalyst who lives in Majorca and together they will offer the treatment and give each other support.

“The trial is going to be in Utrecht and maybe one or two weeks afterwards I will hear the end of this.”

We await the trial’s conclusion.

    When will we start holding ourselves accountable over blaming other people? This guy clearly had issues with alcohol before seeing her, we all know what addiction does to a person, is it so far fetched that this guy would have lost his shit regardless of this women and what she did to try and HELP him?

    Although Sara does try to help she also makes sure that she gets her money, of course this is natural for anybody who makes a living in some sort. Unfortunately my experience with ibogaine did not turn out too well when I stayed at Sara’s house, I don’t blame her but perhaps I did not receive enough ibogaine? I was going back and forths between methadone and heroin. After when I finished treatment and came home I had terrible restless legs, depression and anxiety, not even xanax could control. I stayed this way for 4 months, although ibogaine take away very extreme withdrawals it does not in my experience take away what you get after 1 or 2 weeks when you quit heroin and methadone. I just could not handle the mental symptoms and pain in my body for the long term. I could have done rapid detox and still felt the same. I told Sara about this and she sent me more ibogaine, again which made me mentally well for couple of days, then again symptoms started to appear, iI told Sara about this too but she said there is nothing more she or ibogaine can do, and how it works for others,. I dont blame Sara but I do think she is a little misinformed abouty substances such as methadone which take a terrible long time to get better. This time I am talking tramadol, and will slowly reduce of that.
