Luttrell Applauds VA Decision to Fund Studies on New Therapies for Treating Combat-Related Injuries

Congressman Morgan Luttrell (R-TX) applauded the Department of Veterans Affairs’ decision to request applications for proposals to research the use of psychedelic therapies to treat post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injuries (TBI), and other combat-related injuries. 
“This is great news for our veterans that lays the foundation for us to save the lives of those that have so generously served our country,” said Congressman Luttrell. “This is tremendous progress for the VA, made possible by working closely with Secretary McDonough and the House Committee on Veterans Affairs' commitment to finding better solutions for our veterans. We must continue to push forward on these groundbreaking efforts to give those facing these issues another tool in the proverbial toolbox.”
Congressman Morgan Luttrell recently had provisions to fund and authorize clinical research into emerging therapies to treat combat-related injuries included in the FY24 NDAA and has personal experience with psychedelic therapies to treat a TBI. 
Congressman Luttrell serves on the House Veterans Affairs Committee, House Armed Services Committee, and Co-Chairs the Neuroscience Caucus.
