BrightView Health, a comprehensive outpatient addiction treatment provider with 57 locations throughout Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Delaware, and North Carolina has acquired Column Health with clinics in Connecticut and Massachusetts. All services will continue uninterrupted, and staff will transition to the new brand.
Column Health was founded in 2016 with the vision that by providing a collaborative, concierge clinical care model supported by unique technology platforms, Column Health can provide the most humane, comprehensive, convenient and coordinated care for patients seeking mental health care and substance use disorder treatment.. Column serves more than 4,000 patients with a full spectrum of addiction and mental health care in New England. By joining BrightView, Column will be able to expand its services and continue to provide the best patient experiences and life-saving care to those struggling with the disease of addiction.
There are many synergies between the models of care provided by Column Health and BrightView, so patients and community partners should continue to expect high-quality care and best-in-class outcomes. Both programs leverage data, analysis, and leading technology platforms to improve patient engagement and produce best-in-class outcomes. Treatment programs address the biological, psychological, and social components of addiction. They are personalized and generally include medication for addiction treatment (MAT), visits with a medical provider, one-to-one counseling, and group therapy help patients achieve lasting recovery.
Colin Beatty, Co-founder and CEO of Column Health, said:
“Column Health is dedicated to increasing access to more humane, outcomes focused treatment for any individuals with substance use disorder who want it and leveraging technology enablement and outcomes data to improve that treatment and tailor care for our patients, meeting them where they are throughout their path of recovery. Partnering with BrightView enables us to grow more rapidly than on our own, to serve more patients and leverage the combined leadership of the two organizations and to continue to lead the market in treatment innovations. We know their commitment to putting patients first resonates strongly with our own mission, and we look forward to combining efforts to continue to lead addiction medicine and save more lives.”
Chad Smith, Co-founder and CEO of BrightView Health, added:
“Column Health has been successful through its commitment to providing effective addiction treatment that leverages modern healthcare technology. We are excited to build on their legacy, and we are committed to a smooth transition for each patient, staff member, and community partner. The team at BrightView is looking forward to bringing our expertise and leadership in the field to communities in Massachusetts and Connecticut.”

About BrightView Health
BrightView provides outpatient treatment for substance use disorder (SUD) in Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, and Delaware. Patients and partners can call 833-510-HELP (4357) 24-hours per day to schedule an appointment or assessment at any BrightView location. Because effective treatment for addiction often requires immediate care walk-ins are accepted weekdays until 3pm. For patients suffering from withdrawal, it takes less than 4 hours on average from the time they walk in the door to receive the medication they need, complete their very first counseling session, and begin lasting recovery.
The organization’s effective treatment approach includes medication assisted treatment (MAT), individual counseling, group therapy, social service support, as well as work on co-occurring disorders. Locations are generally able to dispense medication on-site, which makes treatment easy and convenient for patients. The treatment plan works seamlessly with daily life commitments. We accept more insurance plans than any other substance use disorder treatment provider in the state, including Medicaid, Medicare, Tricare (with referral), and commercial plans.
BrightView’s compassionate and professional staff create an accessible and welcoming environment for both physical and emotional healing. BrightView is about respect for each patient, positive reinforcement, and long-term wellness. To learn more, please visit brightviewhealth.com.
