The Holistic Sanctuary Assails Showtime’s Portrayal of Heroin Addiction and the Use of Ibogaine on ‘Homeland’
Date:11/26/2013

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 26, 2013

The Holistic Sanctuary announces its review and criticism of Showtime’s latest episode of “Homeland” (Season 3, Episode 9; ‘One Last Time’), in which the character Nicholas Brody (played by Damian Lewis), a former U.S. Marine Sergeant and a revealed agent for al Qaeda, who is now in the protective custody of the CIA in Caracas, receives a sudden dose of Ibogaine to eliminate his addiction to heroin. The addiction, which is the result of the character’s physical isolation and depression, is a stereotypical depiction of chemical dependency – followed by cold turkey withdrawal and a scant, one-sided description of Ibogaine as a plant, which speeds up detox but gives users “violent, mind-bending hallucinations,” resulting in Brody’s attempt to stab himself to death with a shard of a broken chair.

The Holistic Sanctuary takes issue with both the scientific accuracy of this episode and the network’s failure to disclose, before or after the episode’s conclusion, that the CIA cooperates with the show, providing a liaison to answer questions about CIA culture and practices. Nor does the episode advise viewers that consulting producer Henry Bromell is the son of a CIA agent, or that the Agency sponsored Ibogaine clinical trials in the fifties, though the results of those trials have never been disclosed.

For viewers unfamiliar with the severity of heroin addiction, the episode, in the professional opinion of the expert staff at The Holistic Sanctuary, does nothing to expose the enormity of this epidemic or the proper administration of Ibogaine, alongside the customized, safe and all-natural care necessary for a patient to properly heal from the effects of long-term chemical dependency. In fact, the episode never shows how or when Brody receives the Ibogaine treatment, with no mention
