BayMark Health Services has recently acquired a Narcotic Addiction Treatment Agency (NATA), an Opioid Treatment Program (OTP) in Sun Valley, CA.  In business for over 35 years, the company provides medication-assisted treatment (MAT) in the San Fernando Valley area. The company’s focus is to provide comprehensive treatment for opioid addiction professionally without losing sight of the compassion component.  

NATA specializes in outpatient methadone maintenance and detoxification with combined substance use counseling and behavioral therapies. This evidence-based approach is individualized to meet the needs of each patient. In addition, they also provide addiction and relapse education, coordinated treatment during pregnancy, in-house lab services, and referrals to community resources to assist patients in rebuilding their lives.

According to the press release, David K. White, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of BayMark Health Services, said, “While California is a leader in affordable, accessible opioid use disorder (OUD) treatment, there is still a need to expand and enhance those services in response to the unabating opioid crisis. BayMark has a significant presence in the State and is pleased to continue growing that footprint to provide services to Californians in need of help.”

This is the seventh treatment agency acquired by BayMark in the LA area; they recently acquired two Suboxone Clinics in May of this year. You can read the M&A details here
