LYNDHURST, N.J., Nov. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunspire Health, a leader in the treatment of addiction, today announced the acquisition of its newest facility, a 40-bed residential treatment center in Princeton, Texas. The facility was previously owned by Caron Treatment Centers, a leading not-for-profit provider of addiction and behavioral healthcare services. This will be Sunspire's first facility in the state, bringing its evidence-based therapies and abstinence-focused approach to Texas and the surrounding region.
"We are eager to continue Caron's mission of treating behavioral disorders in the region, building on their established reputation and decades of experience in addiction treatment," said A.J. Schreiber, CEO of Sunspire Health. "Sunspire has undergone tremendous growth this year, with 10 facilities open by yearend, which has allowed us to help thousands of people on their road to recovery through our proven model of treatment."
Sunspire Health offers comprehensive treatment programs individualized to each person's lifestyle and needs. Its clinical care plans are supported by Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), which is a practice that utilizes medications in combination with counseling and behavioral therapies. With high staff-to-patient ratios in intimate settings, each patient at a Sunspire facility receives the treatment they require to treat their behavioral disorder, from substance use disorder and eating disorders to gambling or sex addiction. Every facility has onsite licensed mental health clinicians, physicians, nurses, and certified addiction specialists, who are experienced in helping people achieve lasting sobriety.
"We are thrilled to be 'handing over the reigns' to a quality treatment facility, whose mission and vision are in alignment with ours," said Doug Tieman, President and CEO of Caron. "Sunspire has set the bar high, settling for nothing less than first-rate care. The Texas community is in the best of hands for addiction treatment."
23.5 million Americans (ages 12 or older) require treatment for an illicit drug or alcohol abuse problem, but only 2.6 million—11.2 percent of those who needed treatment—received it at a specialty facility.1 This acquisition represents a core investment for Sunspire Health, allowing it to expand its overall capacity to provide care to an underserved population.
