Can Wrongfully Convicted Man Get past His PTSD?
December 06, 2017
Last season, we met Clarence who spent several years in jail for a crime he did not commit. Following his exoneration, he developed PTSD and we sent him to see PTSD specialist Dr. Eugene Lipov.
Dr. Lipov pioneered a groundbreaking treatment for PTSD which involves a simple epidermal injection to the neck.

Dr. Lipov treats both Clarence and wife Molly, who says she is experiencing secondary PTSD.
