New York Chiropractic College and the Seneca County Community Counseling Center announced a new partnership in which NYCC faculty clinicians and students will provide chiropractic and acupuncture treatment to the clients of the SCCCC.
The Seneca County Community Counseling Center specializes in behavioral health outpatient treatment including a comprehensive menu of substance abuse and mental health services. NYCC offers a number of experiential clinical experiences for students at various sites including community health centers and Veterans’ Administration hospitals.
This new partnership will offer NYCC students another opportunity to gain valuable, hands-on clinical experience while providing beneficial complimentary services and treatment to current SCCCC clients. Evidence increasingly demonstrates that chiropractic and acupuncture can be important tools in providing drug-free pain management, as well as in managing the symptoms of withdrawal from opioids and other addictive drugs. This partnership is a natural fit for NYCC’s chiropractic and acupuncture clinicians to offer their skills to clients wishing to reduce pain and/or the use of opioids and other addictive substances, as well as improving their overall wellness.
Margaret Morse, LMSW, of SCCCC says “Seneca County Community Counseling Center is committed to providing our clients with options for multiple and innovative paths to recovery. We are excited about this new partnership with the New York Chiropractic College for provision of integrative care to eligible clinic clients.” Dr. Wendy Maneri, NYCC Associate Dean for Chiropractic Clinical Education and Health Centers, says, “We look forward to this new relationship that will enable our students to learn from and serve in the community that is so important to us all.”
NYCC-provided acupuncture and chiropractic care for SCCC clients will begin January 29, 2019.
