Tony Macie

Tony Macie is a retired Sergeant of the U.S. Army. He spent 15 long months in Iraq during the surge in 2006 and 2007. When he returned home from the war he was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) resulting from his experiences during combat and while 
transitioning out of the military.

His symptoms of PTSD became "treatment-resistant" after the medication and psychotherapy that the Veterans Affairs provided was ineffective. He began to search for alternative treatment methods, and that's when he heard about the trial of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy to treat PTSD. After being accepted as a participant and receiving the treatment, he's proud to say that he's no longer on medications, and able to more fully live life, and his 
relationship with PTSD has changed completely.
