  • M&A frenzy is not a fad
    • Authors: Doug Edwards
      Abstract: If you are a private residential operation, someone will likely come knocking on your door, meanwhile, if you are a CMHC executive, expect new privately funded outpatient providers to emerge in your community. Behavioral healthcare is red hot in the investor community. When I started in the field 15 years ago, behavioral healthcare in some ways was a backwater of general healthcare, much maligned, usually ignored, with no parity regulations. Sure, there were some big players such as Psychiatric Solutions and the like, but mergers, acquisitions, and large investments were hardly everyday news in the field. Boy, have times changed. read more

  • Health Activation to Prevent Infectious Diseases
    • Authors: Ron Manderscheid
      Abstract: Almost invariably, we view health activation as a means of dealing with the triggers for mental and substance use conditions. This is shown in a recent and important report from SAMHSA, "Taking Care of Your Behavioral Health During an Infectious Disease Outbreak" (see http://store.samhsa.gov/product/SMA14-4894).  However, health activation also extends to disarming the triggers for other health conditions as well, such as other chronic diseases and infectious diseases themselves. Here, I would like to discuss our response to infectious diseases. Almost invariably, we view health activation as a means of dealing with the triggers for mental and substance use conditions. This is shown in a recent and important report from SAMHSA, "Taking Care of Your Behavioral Health During an Infectious Disease Outbreak" (see http://store.samhsa.gov/product/SMA14-4894).  However, health activation also extends to disarming the triggers for other health conditions as well, such as other chronic diseases and infectious diseases themselves. read more

  • Worst bed bug cities of 2014
    • Authors: Julia Brown
      Abstract: Bed bugs are not limited to any level of cleanliness and can exist virtually anywhere, even in residential healthcare facilties. Infestations often start with people bringing the insects in on their clothes. Orkin’s annual list, the Top 50 Bed Bugs Cities of 2014, has been released, and the midwest is well represented in the top 10. The number one spot was awarded to Chicago--for the third year in a row--followed by Detroit and Columbus, Ohio.

  • More ACOs look to behavioral health
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Integrating behavioral health and substance abuse services into patient care not only provides more coordination, it also benefits the ACO itself. In an effort to treat the whole patient, Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) across the country are finding innovative ways to integrate mental and behavioral healthcare into their programs. While each ACO might approach integration in its own way, experts say the integration of behavioral healthcare in commercial-payer and Medicaid ACOs is only predicted to grow in the years ahead. read more

  • Northeast treatment chain builds community relationships; expects openings
           this year
    • Authors: Julia Brown
      Abstract: Bringing on a diverse executive team and executing a vision for science-based service certainly does not exempt an organization such as Recovery Centers of America from facing the inherent challenges of operating in the treatment industry. As Recovery Centers of America?s (RCA?s) concept of neighborhood-based addiction treatment and recovery support continues to take shape, the architects of what is designed to become a major Northeast treatment chain also are running up against some traditional community unrest about their plans. read more

  • Washburn Center lets in natural light
    • Authors: Julia Brown
      Abstract: The new facility for children and families incorporates naturally calming features throughout, such as bright and soothing colors, sunny areas, and views of the outdoors and gardens throughout to enhance the healing process. Located on the western edge of downtown Minneapolis, the Washburn Center for Children serves more than 2,700 children a year. Doubling its previous space, Washburn’s new 55,000-square-foot facility was designed to not only support the children receiving care, but also their family members and the clinicians and staff delivering that care, according to Chief Advancement Officer, Linda Smith. read more

  • Murphy pledges to reintroduce bill
    • Authors: Julie Miller
      Abstract: Rep. Tim Murphy aims to get the Helping Families In Mental Health Crisis Act back on the radar in 2015. Several sources have noted that Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.) is close to reintroducing the Helping Families In Mental Health Crisis Act.  In an article in The Hill, he also criticized President Obama for failing to focus on mental health in the State of the Union address on Tuesday, now more than two years after the Newtown, Conn., tragedy. Advocates are still waiting for a bipartisan team to address the weaknesses in the country’s mental health system. read more
