CRC Health Group Announces Acquisition of North Carolina's Mountain Health Solutions

CUPERTINO, Calif., Nov. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CRC Health Group, the nation's largest network of behavioral health and addiction treatment services, today announced the successful acquisition of North Carolina's Mountain Health Solutions outpatient treatment centers.  Mountain Health Solutions, comprised of two facilities located in Asheville and North Wilkesboro, is a certified opioid treatment program by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services which signifies that they meet specific, nationally accepted standards of patient care and organizational functioning.


"We are very pleased to announce this acquisition of Mountain Health Solution's high-quality services and welcome the addition of their two locations to our network," said R. Andrew Eckert, Chief Executive Officer of CRC Health Group.

CRC Health Group currently owns the most comprehensive network of addiction treatment services in the nation.  The addition of Mountain Health Solutions expands the company's ability to offer individuals the latest, evidence-based addiction treatment services that include medication-assisted treatments (MATs) like Suboxone and methadone.  MATs are highly regulated treatment options for individuals who are attempting to overcome an addiction to opioids such as prescription narcotics (Oxycontin, Codeine, Percocet, Morphine, etc.) and heroin.  When used in proper doses as part of a medically supervised addiction treatment program, research has confirmed that the medications used in MAT programs can block cravings and other withdrawal symptoms, and allow individuals to live normal, productive lives.

Together, CRC and Mountain Health Solutions will administer MATs in a safe and caring environment that is supervised by a physician medical director and clinical staff, as part of a complete treatment plan that includes motivational and behavioral therapy, group counseling, and individual counseling to enhance recovery success.  The program also provides intake assessments, treatment for co-occurring disorders, drug abuse education, individualized treatment planning, and relapse prevention.

"Our new relationship with CRC Health Group will allow us to focus our efforts on our core expertise of providing direct clinical care, while CRC will provide the infrastructure necessary for our treatment centers to continue to grow," said Dr. Vicki Ittel, Ph.D., who co-owned MHS with Dr. Elizabeth Stanton, MD.  "We are very excited and proud to be a part of the CRC organization."

Headquartered in Cupertino, Calif., CRC Health Group is the most comprehensive network of specialized behavioral healthcare services in the nation. CRC offers the largest array of personalized treatment options, allowing individuals, families and professionals to choose the most appropriate treatment setting for their behavioral, addiction, weight management and therapeutic education needs. CRC is committed to making its services widely and easily available, while maintaining a passion for delivering advanced treatment.  Since 1995, CRC has been helping individuals and families reclaim and enrich their lives.  For more information, visit or call (877) 637-6237.
