The General’s Drug Problem, The Ibogaine Solution
Lt. Gen. David Fridovich, a Green Beret and Deputy Commander of Special Operations forces recently acknowledge his addiction to Oxycontin and later Morphine. The addiction came as the result of pain medication issued after an injury he sustained while working out. As is often the case, when the source of the pain was not addressed, the General had to take the prescribed medication over a long term. This of course leads to tolerance, and the need for more drugs. He beat the addiction after suffering horrible physical withdrawals, but still has to take narcotics.
According to a USA Today Article this is but one example of an epidemic problem of addiction in our armed forces. The military says that NEW diagnosis of substance abuse has risen to 40,000 soldiers a year. 25-30% of our special forces become drug dependent if they sustain an injury. This is absolutely unacceptable.
This men and women risk their lives, come home injured, and then are left to lives of drug addiction and the family strife, lost jobs and lost friends that come with it. When these soldiers try to shake the addiction, they face painful withdrawals, especially from opiates like Oxycontin.
There is an answer for our war veterans who come home addicted to Oxycontin and other pain medication. It’s called Ibogaine. Listen to this important message about what Ibogaine can do for addiction in the Military.
