Our clinic in Las Cruces, New Mexico

We have a large, growing clinic in Downtown Las Cruces, NM, and have provided more than 10,000 treatments since we started in March 2012. We now have 2 acupuncturists, 13 recliners, 2 tables.  We  treat a diverse group of people for a variety of medical and mental health issues and see average of 170 patients per week, with visits costing as low as $5 per patient.   Massage therapists offer services at Crossroads, as well.  Our clients travel from within a 100-mile radius to receive treatments, including Alamogordo, northern Mexico, El Paso, TX and Truth or Consequences, and we are the only Community Acupuncture clinic within 4 hours.

Our training and consultation program in the border region

Through training programs and consultation services, Crossroads and our partner groups have helped provide over 20,000 free treatments in the US/Mexico Border region since 2011.   Through this we also have a network of established providers here in the region that offer treatments across a continuum of care, including homeless services, detoxification, domestic violence groups, pastoral care, as well as outpatient mental health, addictions, and veterans care.  Groups we work with include a homeless shelter and the St. Luke’s Health Clinic at Community of Hope’s homeless campus in Las Cruces.  The current opening, depending on the applicant’s experience and talents, may involve working within this aspect of our program.
