|Multi-County Counseling, Inc. (MCCI), was founded in 1997 by David Swanner, LPC, NCC to provide mental health treatment services to residents of Oklahoma nursing homes.
December 31, 2002 threatened to be the end for MCCI due to statutory changes made to Chapter 30 of the Oklahoma Administrative Code effectively ending mental health treatment services to nursing home residents under Title XIX.
In January 2003 David Swanner, LPC, NCC; Gregg Johnson, MPH; Jaylene Lander, MS, LBP, LADC/MH, MAC, CCJS; and, Scot Goodridge MS, LPC, LBP, expanded MCCI into a full-service outpatient counseling agency serving Oklahoman(s) ages 4 and older.
In 2016 CARF re-accredited MCCI for yet another 3 years to provide Outpatient Mental Health and Substance Abuse treatment services to children, adolescents, and adults across Oklahoma.
Since January 2003 MCCI, based centrally in Purcell, Oklahoma, has added 4 more Regional Offices in Oklahoma. Our additional Regional offices are located in Tahlequah, Ada, Wewoka, and, Lawton, covering northeast, southwest and southeast-central Oklahoma.
MCCI provides superior mental health, substance abuse, and co-occurring treatment services in its’ office(s), in area schools, and, in client’s homes
