Jerry Garcia Family Clinic was founded in December of 2016 by activist / shamanic healer Gypsy Taub. It is named after the leader of the Grateful Dead band, Jerry Garcia.
The other 3 members of the street kids project are Gypsy's 3 children: Inti Gonzalez (age 18), Nebosvod Gonzalez (16) and Daniel Gonzalez (14).
Jerry Garcia Family Clinic (or Life on the Street Support Services) is a 501 C(3) non-profit organization.
Our headquarters are in Berkeley, California, United States.
We currently provide services in the East Bay, CA and in Mexico.
We help homeless people in general but our main focus is street kids and homeless youth.
We help street kids with everything they need: shelter, food, clothing, counseling, therapy, natural medicine. We also help them quit drugs using natural and alternative remedies.
We are strongly against forced treatment. Our rehab programs are based on free will 100%. Instead of threatening and shaming our patients we reward them (we buy them phones and bicycles as a reward for undergoing an ibogaine treatment).
Ibogaine is one of if not the most magical healing medicinal plants on this planet. It is by far the most effective medicine known to humankind against addiction, PTSD, depression and anything else related to early infant and childhood trauma no matter how severe.
Ibogaine is legal in Mexico. We are currently working on legalizing it in the US and worldwide.
Conventional drug treatments kill 100,000 people a year in just the United States alone. When administered properly to carefully prescreened patients ibogaine is safe.
When it comes to conventional rehabs in the US, in most of their so-called "success" cases they just take the patients off of one drug and put them on another. Prescription medications can be 50 times stronger than heroin and are often more damaging and more addictive than street drugs, not to mention that they are often made of the exact same thing as heroin: opium.
We only call our treatments successful if the patient is off of all drugs and medications and doesn't need anything to alleviate anxiety nor pain.
