Additional terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

An accredited school with certified teachers, Logan River treats adolescents with mental health disorders, autism spectrum disorders, substance abuse, ADHD, impulse control, anger management, self-esteem, family relationships and academic struggles. The clinical staff is comprised of specialty providers, including psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors and nurses.
