“After being deployed to combat I experienced complex PTSD symptoms that went untreated for seven years. After being diagnosed I took part in Phase 2 clinical trials with MDMA assisted therapy. The therapy was so effective at treating my symptoms that I’m now driven to advocate that the same treatments be made readily available to anyone suffering from similar circumstances. I wholeheartedly support the Somatic Center Portland as they open one of the first legal care clinics in the United States, and I hope you do too.
