NYS Council Member Agency Highlighted in Media Spot

December 2, 2022

Yesterday morning during our Thursday morning call I mentioned that one of our member agencies, Cazenovia Recovery, was recently featured in a story that is running on Spectrum News across the state, and that aired last night on Capital Tonight, a politically-focused television show hosted by Susan Arbetter, that is a must watch for state lawmakers and other key decision makers.

Many thanks to Ed Cichon and all of our colleagues at Caz Recovery for agreeing to be interviewed for this spot that features an OASAS licensed Residential Reintegration Program that serves homeless men.  Overall, the spot focuses on the essential work performed in mental health and substance use disorder programs across the state, and specifically on the critical need for a major infusion of resources (8.5% COLA, etc.) to address workforce shortages that are debilitating our agencies.
