The Staircase Method

The preferred methodology in opiate addiction interruption. 


The Staircase Method was developed by Lex Kogan in 2001.  The dosing protocol is based precisely in response to the amount of time necessary for an individual to metabolize opiates out of the brain.

In cases of opioid addiction interruption, “stair-casing" an individual into the dreamstate with customized doses of ibogaine results in a gradual flooding of the pleasure receptors, eventually resulting in revelatory states of awareness. Traditional flood dosing is a successful way to interrupt the symptoms associated with opiate detox.

Through utilization of the Staircase Method in opiate detox, this therapeutic state can be achieved with a gradual build into the waking dream. 

A ‘flood dose’ of ibogaine is an industry term for the required dose necessary to efficiently saturate one’s receptor sites, thus ‘flooding’ the areas responsible for withdrawal alleviation with ibogaine metabolites.

The staircase method utilizes the beneficial aspects of receptor saturation associated with the classic flood while customizing the absorption rate and timing involved in opiate detox.

This formulaic approach relies on the individual’s physiological responses to micro-doses of ibogaine hydrochloride in the primary stages of treatment.  

Reasons why we use the staircase method during Ibogaine Treatment

Once sufficient doses of ibogaine are ingested, the central nervous system is gradually sedated while rapid eye movement is activated in the cognitive and learning centers of the brain. In this phase, emotional memories are allowed to surface from the solar plexus in a cathartic fashion.

This can initiate a therapeutic release of early identifications and repressed emotional trauma, usually stemming from the formative years of youth.

A fascinating aspect of the ibogaine induced dreamstate is the ability to experience REM induced image manifestation. The discriminative mind maintains a liberated point of view for it is freed from suspension of disbelief, a product of unconscious nightly dreamstate activity.

The witness factor of the ego, also known as the ‘I’ in identification psychology, is able to recognize the roots of it’s own origins which normally get discarded by pragmatic thinking as an unnecessary function of the ocean of deep conscious.


Low Wave Dosing

Over a decade ago, Low-Wave Dosing was created by Lex Kogan with the intention of safely administering this medicine to individuals with compromised physiology. It has since been celebrated in Europe and Central America in multiple treatment centers as a successful alternative to the traditional methods utilized in the industry.

Flood dosing protocols promote quick and dramatic results within 72 hours following treatment. However, certain individuals may not meet the necessary criteria to undergo traditional methods of ibogaine therapy.

In contrast,  Low-Wave Dosing gradually introduces ibogaine to the patients over a greater period of time. This protocol facilitates a more subtle transition into the liberated state one experiences post-ibogaine.

The intention of this dosing method is to administer the most effective amount of medicine to the patient’s system without allowing metabolites to affect visible changes in electrocardiography.

Low-Wave Dosing and Central Nervous System Revitalization


Following a more traditional flooding of the receptors, Low-Wave Dosing can provide the most optimal revitalization of the central nervous system (CNS). This application of the medicine is essential for treating individuals with a history of amphetamine abuse.

Individuals suffering from adrenal fatigue associated with stimulant abuse require optimal levels of GDNF, a neuro-growth factor. Increment dosing following a traditional flood can assure significantly higher levels during the blooming phase post treatment.

For stimulant abusers, this is the effective method to achieve maximum recovery of the patient’s neurological state.
