Pipeline: Pinnacle, Monte Nido Add Locations; New ABA Clinics

Pinnacle adds new facility

Pinnacle Treatment Centers has opened its newest facility in Virginia, located in the northern part of the state in Culpeper.

Culpeper Treatment Services provides outpatient medication-assisted treatment (MAT) services with medications such as methadone and buprenorphine, in addition to counseling.

The new facility — which accepts Medicaid — is Pinnacle’s 11th in the state. It is opening at a time when the drug-related death rate in Culpeper County has climbed higher than the overall rate statewide, according to the press release announcing the news.


Headquartered in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, Pinnacle provides the full range of MAT services out of over 115 locations in eight states. It specializes in Medicaid-reimbursed MAT using methadone and is owned by the health care private equity firm Linden Capital Partners.

The facility is located in Puyallup, which is outside of Tacoma. The clinic provides MAT services and accepts all forms of insurance including Medicare and Medicaid.

The new location opens as the overdose death rate in Pierce County has been higher than the rest of the state, with over three-quarters of county residents who are on Medicaid not getting the opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment they need, according to data from the Washington State Health Care Authority.

Ideal Option operates 67 MAT clinics across 10 states. The company is financially backed by BlueCross BlueShield Venture Partners and Varsity Healthcare Partners.
