Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1995
This description of Jacques Mabit's work was prepared when Jacques Mabit was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1995.
Jacques Mabit has developed an original method for rehabilitating drug addicts that combines therapies developed and widely practiced in modern, industrialized societies with the use of medicinal plants and other techniques long employed by traditional healers in the Amazonian region of Peru. Jacques and a small group of associates have established a small clinic in that region, where they are testing and refining his approach and carefully examining its results.
