About Tabula Rasa Retreat

Tabula Rasa Retreat has rapidly positioned itself as a premier European ibogaine clinic. Located in the Alentejan region of Portugal, its clientele is mainly from the United Kingdom, Northern Europe, UAE and the USA. All treatments undergo medical vetting and are medically monitored and supervised by ACLS trained medical staff.

While not a magic cure, Ibogaine can interrupt addictions and offer a pain-free withdrawal from opiates. To support ibogaine treatments, expect holistic therapies such as breathwork, bodywork, massage, meditation, kundalini yoga, reiki, gong baths, drumming circles, equine assisted therapy, personal training and nutrition advice. This is further supported by 1:1 counselling and group therapy by our in-house counsellors. In addition, online aftercare meetings are offered for life.

We arrived at Tabula Rasa in the middle of the night in mid July 2018.

The process actually started six weeks earlier - correspondence, medical tests, preliminary treatments (pre-sessions by skype), and more. Alvaro, the initiator of this brilliant place and the manager was available and accessible, as was the staff of the therapists and the administrative director - the staff acted in a professional, personal way and full of Integrity.

These characteristics of professionalism, sensitivity, flexibility in real situations and commitment accompanied all our days in this place later on.

I accompanied my eldest brother to this therapy for the first time after 35 years of heroin addiction, which he expressed a sincere desire heal from. Alvaro made sure my brother arrived physically ready and conditioned the transition to opiates that were easily transfused from blood, and with a thorough examination of the heart, considering his age and physical condition.

The reception was warm. The doctor met us at the airport and drove with us to the center.

The treatment began on the second day, the treating staff, the doctor, Alvaro, and the two alternative therapists - Andy and Danny - made sure that the process was deep emotionally and spiritually, and medically safe. The excellent team conducted by Alvaro did their best that my brother will best begin the transformation and the path to future healing.

We could not ask for more. The last day farewell was difficult - the week was full of moments of friendship, responsibility, sincerity, and courage. Alvaro and the Tabula Rasa family are one of those rare cases where one place and at a certain point in time meets rare forces of wisdom and kindness.

It is hard to say thank you in words for something so total and generous that we are given in deeds.

These days, we are in contact with Alvaro - the descent into detail, the concern for my brother on the days of the treatment that went beyond what was expected. The reason I accompanied my brother in advance was that he did not speak Portuguese or English - I accompanied him as an interpreter. But after a week there, communication was created beyond the language, and technically, my brother and Alvaro communicate almost daily in recorded and translated messages.

It was perhaps the longest week of my life-hardly any sleep. Neither for me nor for the devoted staff...

My brother claims that the spirit of God dwells in this special place.

And I reinforce and add that hard work and the thoughtful work of those who take part in the place empowers the spirit of God, which is commanded not by chance.

We are extremely lucky and grateful.

Everything was very well organized and professional. Everyone who i met who worked at TRR had a great attitude and approach - Alvaro, Dr Fred, Rafaela and Hans to mention a few The medical preparation and equipment were all very good. Dr Fred and the staff made sure all was ok and took excellent care of all required and in explaining what would happen. The one to one discussions before treatment about what was expected and about understanding my desires and intentions were well structured helpful and clear I may just have been lucky but all the people who came for treatment during my stay were very genuine and wanted the best for everyone regardless of the reason the person was there. I was there to address my deep long term depression which has caused many problems for me. The food was very healthy and good and the accomodation comfortable, clean, well set up for all required and generally very relaxed Also a lot of thought had gone into the various activities which are part of the stay - meditation breath work yoga and much more. I feel it all makes sense when one looks at the big picture. Alvaro's approach to what he is doing and people is really exceptional and first class

Beautiful location surrounded by lush nature. The people were so warm and friendly there and it was a very calm setting. The food was out of this world good, very healthy yet so tasty. The only thing was that it was a little cold. But overall I don't think I could've asked for a better treatment center.

I was full of fear about leaving my terrible drug habit behind. I was addicted to meth and crack cocaine. As soon as I was collected from the airport by their support worker, the fear got less and less. The team made me feel comfortable and welcome and prepared me properly for my ibogaine treatment. I had a terrifying yet rewarding experience and haven’t used drugs since. I have had a few close shaves but have always called on my support network. At the time they didn’t offer online meetings, but they do now. I find them really useful. Iboga works but it takes hard work after, at least in my experience.

Everyone here has been so kind and friendly, this really helped me get through the experience. It was also refreshing to have my concerns and needs listened to and attended to. The flexibility of the staff enabled me to cope, as at rehabs in the past, I was either ignored or met with total obstruction with regards to my needs whereas here I was actually treated as an individual and adaptions or additions to my treatment plan have been met where at all possible ie. with my inability to sleep! I struggled with the breath work, but was encouraged to persevere. I loved the fitness, although really difficult, felt great afterwards! Its a lovely, homely environment full of staff that is evident really do care.

The people at Tabula Rasa Retreat are very warm and genuine. I felt welcome and taken care off from the first day I arrived. One thing that was important for me was to get in conversation with them about my problems before I arrived, so I could get information about things that was important for me. They were easy to contact and helped me with everything I needed. They have much knowledge and passion for Iboga. You will get the treatment you need and they set the medical safety high. They will give you a safe treatment. Great people and a great place to recover.
