“Opioid addiction has reached epidemic proportions in the US,” said Jay Higham, Chief Executive Officer of BHG. “We believe addiction is a brain disease and that the most effective approach to therapy is through a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan utilizing medication and intensive counseling. We are very excited by the opportunity to bring our treatment philosophy to Virginia and the larger mid-Atlantic marketplace.”

“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 Officer 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.”
