In October 2016, Behavioral Health Group (“BHG”), a leading provider of outpatient substance abuse treatment services, acquired Affinity Health Group two clinics in Virginia, bringing the company’s total clinic count to 37 locations across ten states. Located in Chesapeake and Virginia Beach, VA, the clinics newly establish a BHG presence in the state, while simultaneously strengthening the company’s established footprint across the mid-Atlantic and southeast regions and further diversifying BHG’s suite of treatment services.
“We are pleased to welcome our new colleagues to BHG,” said Dwight Mussleman, Chief Development Officer of BHG. “A fundamental component of BHG’s strategy is to develop a regional platform whereby BHG can leverage resources to better serve communities and patients. The addition of these two treatment centers is the next step in our national expansion plans.”
The previous owners of the treatment centers are happy that BHG will continue a patient-centric philosophy by offering individuals personalized treatment in accordance with best practices. “It was important to us to transfer our treatment centers to a company that is focused on quality care and that has a passion and genuine concern for our patients,” stated Judd Mendelson, Chief Executive Offer and partner in Affinity Health Group. “In addition, BHG made the sales process very easy and we would recommend them to any treatment center owner looking to sell.”
