CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 1, 2013) - CRC Health Group, the nation's largest network of behavioral health and addiction treatment services, today announced the acquisition of Willamette Valley Treatment Center located in Salem, Oregon. Founded in 1999, the Willamette Valley Treatment Center provides comprehensive outpatient addiction treatment services.
"We are very pleased to announce the acquisition of Willamette Valley Treatment Center and welcome their exceptional staff and high-quality program to our outstanding 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 Willamette Valley Treatment Center expands the company's ability to offer individuals the latest, evidence-based addiction treatment services that include medication-assisted treatment (MAT) like Suboxone and methadone. MAT is a highly regulated treatment option 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 Willamette Valley Treatment Center will administer medication-assisted treatment 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.
Said Eckert, "Jay [Lawshe, former Executive President who will stay on as Clinic Director] has established a very positive reputation in this community and has greatly helped to increase awareness and understanding about treatment clinics. We are excited to partner with her and continue her terrific legacy."
