In September 2015, Universal Health Services (UHS) purchased Foundations Recovery Network and created a new addiction-services division with Foundations as the flagship. Talbott Recovery, a Georgia-based treatment operation that UHS already owns, was recently moved into the division as well. The respective leadership will work to integrate and collaborate on strategic plans.

"This partnership is extremely complementary," said Paige Bottom, group CEO at Foundations Recovery Network, in a statement. "It makes perfect sense. There are some great things that have already started to happen, and we expect many more opportunities."

Currently, Foundations has 19 locations with three more in the pipeline, bringing its total portfolio to five states. A forthcoming outpatient center in Chicago will mark its first venture into Illinois, a Foundations spokesperson tells Behavioral Healthcare.

Additionally, the brand recently announced the grand opening of Skywood Recovery, a new full-service residential treatment center with 100 beds. Formerly a golf resort, Skywood is situated on a 303-acre property in Augusta, Mich. Programs will specialize in the integrated treatment of co-occurring conditions, using DBT skills, CBT, medication management, life skills training and holistic options such as art, equine and adventure therapy.
