BRC Healthcare is entering the Nashville, Tennessee market with the acquisition of four affiliated facilities for an undisclosed amount. The four locations include Nashville Recovery Center (NRC), NRC Clinical, Nashville Detox Center and Tennessee Recovery Clinic.
Co-founders Ryan Cain and Darren Hobbs established the four companies in 2018 and are coming aboard BRC in management roles for day-to-day operations.
“Since 2019 the Nashville Recovery Center has helped over 25,000 people step out of addiction and into recovery,” Cain said in a press release announcing the acquisition. “Partnering with BRC Healthcare will allow us to reach and help even more people, and we know the positive ripple effect that sobriety will have on them, their families, and our communities.”
BRC Healthcare, a Manor, Texas-based provider of substance use disorder (SUD) treatment services, operates three residential care programs through its homebase in the Austin area — BRC Recovery, Spearhead Lodge and Makana Path — in addition to Segue, an operator of sober living homes and outpatient services that is based in Manor. The company provides individualized, gender-specific treatments to adults suffering from alcoholism, drug dependence and other addiction disorders, including detox, outpatient services and residential treatment.
BRC recently received financial backing from the private investment firms Veronis Suhler Stevenson (VSS) and NewSpring Health Capital. The company is likely to pursue further acquisitions, VSS indicated in a statement.
BRC expects their arrival in Nashville with bolster access to substance abuse disorder treatment for patients in that region.
“We’re eager to bring the BRC Family of Programs to Nashville, where there’s a real need for addiction treatment services,” BRC CEO Andrew Rothermel said in the press release. “Nashville is corporate headquarters for many substance abuse disorder companies, but there is actually a shortage of treatment beds. We intend to significantly expand the number of treatment beds in the region and ensure that our patients receive a complete continuum of care.”
