The Jungle Prescription is the tale of two doctors treating their addicted patients with a mysterious Amazonian medicine rumored to reveal oneâ€™s deepest self. Dr. Gabor MatÃ© has a revolutionary idea: to treat addicts with compassion. His work as the resident doctor in Vancouverâ€™s Portland Hotel - a last-chance destination for lifelong drug abusers - has been courageous, but incredibly frustrating. MatÃ© hears of an ancient medicine beyond his imaginings: one that could provide his patients with a solution. Its name is ayahuasca: the vine of the souls. Deep in the Amazon jungle, French doctor Jacques Mabit is using this medicine to treat hardcore addicts. Mabit runs a detox centre in the Amazon (Takiwasi or "The House That Sings"), using the plants and methods of traditional medicine. Ayahuasca is a visionary formula that unlocks emotional memory; causing life-changing catharsis in those who drink it. The reported success rates for curing addicts at Dr. Mabit's detox centre are quadruple the average.
