Behavioral Health Group (BHG) recently completed the latest acquisition of a treatment center in Newport News, VA. BHG Newport News now represents the third location for the company in the state of Virginia. “We are very committed to serving the community in Southeast Virginia and we look forward to building on the great team already in place here,” said Dwight Mussleman, Chief Development Officer for BHG.
Virginia continues to struggle with an unmet need and demand for proven opioid addiction treatment services. BHG will immediately work to leverage its resources and operational experience to expand services and access to medication-assisted treatment, the gold standard for opioid use disorder treatment.
“Opioid overdose related deaths continue to rise throughout the United States despite a decrease in the amount of prescriptions written for these substances. Heroin and illicit Fentanyl are becoming catastrophic problems,” said Dr. Christopher Marshall, National Medical Director for BHG. “Behavioral Health Group is leading the way to get people the help they need with a time tested and structured program that helps people get their lives back.”
