LIGHTNING RELEASES — DALLAS, June 16, 2014 – Behavioral Health Group (BHG) today announced the opening of the BHG Poplar Bluff, Missouri Treatment Center at 1369 North Westwood Blvd, Poplar Bluff, MO 63901.
“We are committed to opening modern, state of the art, high quality addiction treatment centers in underserved parts of the US,” said Jay Higham, Chief Executive Officer of BHG. “Our service focuses on opioid addiction treatment utilizing evidence based pharmacotherapy and counseling services. Poplar Bluff was selected based on the fact that the company has other treatment centers in the state but the nearest alternative for patients requires driving 130 miles a day for comparable care.”
Dwight Mussleman, BHG Chief Development Officer, added, “Missouri is one of the company’s core markets and the focus of our business development effort in 2014. We expect to be able to announce the launch of another treatment center in the state in the near future as well as acquisitions in other states during the course of the year.”
