U.S. Veterans Study: 20th Subject Enrolled and Treated; Funding Completed

On August 26, 2014, the 20th subject was treated in our ongoing study of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for 24 U.S. veterans, firefighters, and police officers with chronic, treatment-resistant PTSD. This subject was enrolled on August 12, and is the first police officer enrolled in the study. In just 16 days, over 800 funders helped us reach our $50,000 goal for our Legalizing Psychedelic Therapy crowdfunding campaign (ongoing through September 25), completing our multi-year, $1.38 million fundraising effort for this study. “I really did find the healing that I needed for the combat experiences that I went through during my very first session,” says Iraq veteran and study participant Nicholas Blackston in the campaign video. “It just helped me go so much deeper within my consciousness. I accepted that part of myself that I had cut off.”
