CRC is Nation's Largest Behavioral/Educational Health Provider

DURHAM, N.C. and CUPERTINO, Calif., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dr. Barry Karlin, Chairman and CEO of CRC Health Group, has announced the acquisition of Structure House, a residential, weight-loss facility for adults dealing with overweight, obesity and diabetes located in Durham, North Carolina. Founded in 1977 by Dr. Gerard J. Musante, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist and leading authority in weight-loss, Structure House is dedicated to achieving long-term weight loss through behavioral modification and lifestyle change.

"We are delighted to welcome Structure House and its team to the CRC family," said Dr. Karlin. "Structure House is a very successful, high quality, comprehensive program that focuses on helping adults gain control of their weight, health and lives. The addition of Structure House to our existing healthy living programs allows for a full range of services to those in need and will nicely complement our adolescent obesity program."

Dr. Musante also expressed great enthusiasm about this new relationship and the significant opportunities it presents for Structure House. "We have long respected what CRC Health's team has done in developing and managing its network of outstanding facilities," said Dr. Musante. "This is an exciting opportunity for Structure House to expand and become an integral part of the country's leading specialty healthcare organization."

Under the new arrangement, all aspects of Structure House's treatment program will remain unchanged. Dr. Musante will continue as Structure House's director, and all of the key staff, programs, services and treatment methods will also remain entirely the same.

The infusion of CRC's resources into the Structure House program under the continued guidance and vision of its designer, Dr. Musante, will enable the successful expansion of the current Structure House facility both in Durham and in another location on the West Coast. "We are extremely pleased that Dr. Musante has agreed to continue in his current leadership role at Structure House," Karlin added. "His dedication to achieving the highest standards of quality has earned the facility a reputation for excellence in the field of weight management."

This partnership will also enable Structure House to explore new offerings for participants as well as create a more comprehensive "E-Care Program" for continuing treating participants at home through telephone and Internet contact.
