Safe Haven Ibogaine Safe Haven University, BB Pugliese, Randy McCurdy, Charles Johnston, Jessica Bennett Took me for $10,572.00, did not complete treatment, refuses to refund me Rosarito Internet, MX,CA
DO NOT SEND YOUR LOVED ONES HERE! This place is a total scam, they took me to my bank in SanDiego and then straight to their bank...Citibank. The place was not at all as described or pictured on their website. It's nothing more than a rented house by a beach. No real medical staff (the ones they did have quit due to no pay). The staff barely speaks English, dogs nextdoor bark all day and night, staff drinks alcohol nightly and parties on other drugs like DMT and cocaine. There was absolutely NOTHING to eat except the cheapest crap they can buy which is Talapia and chicken with rice EVERY DAY. Patients are left to fend for themselves in the mornings while staff sleeps in. There are no activities for patients. All of the patients I met there were rushed into ibogaine the following day of their arrival and dropped off at the airport 2-3 days later with no aftercare plans. I went their on Suboxone and was told $10,000.00 for treatment which included my flights, that wasn't the case as I paid for my own flights there. Due to my liver not being able to take ibogaine, I was dropped off at the border at 10:00 pm and had to wait for a drunk staff member for an hour to pick me up. I was dropped off at the SanDiego airport and was forced to sleep in the lobby until my flight the next day, it took me almost 24 hours to finally get home. Since I've been home I've had no real contact with Safe Haven and when I asked for my money back, I received threatening phone calls from BB Pugliese. I asked for a refund due to all of the horrifying stories I have heard about the way people have been treated there since my departure. I've also found out that ibogaine is still black market in Mexico, it's not really legal and it isn't really illegal but nonetheless, Safe Haven is not licensed to provide that type of treatment, they're registered as a spa! I've heard that there have been deaths associated with Safe Havens treatment. I guess that's why when BB and Randy took me across the border during my stay, to visit my bank, I was told to lie to the officials at the border regarding why I was in Mexico. These people are nothing more than crooks and all I want is a refund! Really, my story isn't much different than any other persons who's had a bad experience with these crooks. Please, for the love of God, do not send anyone there. Unfortunately there will be people like myself who will not check them out before trusting them. I will say this, I will not rest until my money is refunded!!!!
