Pipeline: Spero Health Adds 16th Location of 2020; Monte Nido Expands in Georgia

Spero Health continues aggressive 2020 growth trajectory

Spero Health has opened a new addiction treatment clinic in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. It’s the 16th new facility the Nashville-based company has added so far this year. 

Spero Health is one of the largest office-based opioid treatment providers (OTPs) in the country, with more than 45 clinics across Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Virginia and Tennessee. The organization is privately held by Heritage Group, Health Velocity Capital, South Central, Inc. and Frist Cressey Ventures.

Spero Health’s CEO Steve Priest said the new clinic is Hopkinsville, as well as the others the company has opened this year, are designed to meet the high demand for substance use disorder (SUD) treatment services, especially amid the COVID-19 emergency.


“Alarming rates of overdose deaths have spiked because people are struggling with increased uncertainty and instability,” Priest said in a press release announcing the news. “It has aggravated psychological issues, and many people have turned to drugs and alcohol to ease the stress. As we go into the winter months, we feel it is critical for communities to have access to life-saving addiction treatment options during this time, and we are working very hard to make that happen.”
