Pangea Biomedics is located in a lavish four-bedroom home in Tijuana's upscale Playas neighborhood.

This week's feature story, Shock the Junkie, examines a controversial addiction cure called ibogaine. A potent hallucinogen, the substance is illegal in the United States but unregulated in many countries, including Canada and Mexico. Our story features several scenes at Pangea Biomedics, a rehab clinic in Tijuana that specializes in ibogaine therapy. Here's a photo tour of the facility, courtesy of writer/photographer Keegan Hamilton.
