SGT(R) Jonathan Lubecky is an Iraq veteran who had his life saved by MDMA-assisted therapy. As a participant in MAPS’ Phase 2 clinical trial for MDMA-assisted therapy, Jonathan went into this session suffering from severe PTSD which included 5 suicide attempts, and came out of the trial saying he longer suffers from PTSD at all.
Now a governmental and veteran liaison for MAPS, Jonathan has been sharing his remarkable story of healing to help bring awareness to this life-changing MDMA treatment. While MDMA-assisted therapy is not legal for therapeutic use yet, it is projected that the FDA will likely approve it by 2023.
During this ep, Jonathan discusses his story, what the clinical trial was like, why he feels it helped and what his plans are for the future to help bring this breakthrough therapy to the countless other people who are suffering from PTSD.
If you know anyone suffering from PTSD, please share this episode and help spread the word that help is on the way.
