As the prevalence of addiction continues to rise and the deficit of quality treatment centers remains, we recognize the need for expansion to provide treatment resources across the country.

Lakeview Health, a leader in the treatment of substance use disorders, has begun renovations on a new treatment center in The Woodlands, TX, which is located just north of Houston. This will be the organization’s first Texas facility.

“Opening a facility in Texas is the first step in providing excellent services to areas in need of access to care,” said Brian Potts, operating partner of The Riverside Company, which acquired Lakeview Health in December 2016. “Riverside was excited to partner with Lakeview last year because of the first-rate clinical program, facilities and staff. We are looking forward to expanding Lakeview’s high level of care to additional markets.”
The greater Houston metropolitan area currently offers few treatment options for those who suffer from addiction and psychiatric disorders. Additionally, Houston has been identified as one of the fastest growing populations in the U.S. due in part to the number of Fortune 500 companies and larger organizations both established and entering the marketplace. The suburbs around Houston, such as Conroe, just a few miles north of Lakeview Health’s new The Woodlands facility, grew 7.8% between 2015 and 2016.
“With a growing population and few addiction treatment options in Montgomery County and the surrounding area, this new location offers another option for individuals in need of intensive treatment,” said Roy M.
