As founder of The JC Seneca Foundation and owner of Native Pride Travel Plaza, J C Seneca has given his time, talents and financial resources in supporting the people of the Seneca Nation. Recently he expanded that support by sharing his personal story of addiction and recovery in The Buffalo News Refresh Magazine.
In the Page Two article, J C told of his 2014 decision to deal with his struggles with alcohol and marijuana by seeking help at Pine Grove Behavioral Health and Addiction Services in Hattisburg, Mississippi. There the successful businessman spent 80 days in a drug-free atmosphere that he freely states, “…saved my life.”
While J C is known throughout the United States for his successful business career and as a tribal leader in the Seneca Nation, few people knew of his addictions, or his battles to overcome them. He decision to go public was based on his dedication to help others who are addicted, combined with the mental health
crisis arising out of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Turning his words into action, J C additionally entered into a partnership with Harmonia Collaborative Care in a program aimed at providing needed mental health counseling and care for those on the Seneca Reservation.
