Who Is Odyssey Behavioral Healthcare?

Richard Clark

Chief Executive Officer

“I’ve always had a leaning towards caring for others – as a staff nurse, a chief nursing officer, or as a behavioral healthcare CEO at various facilities across the U.S. I believe these experiences and my alignment with patient care has allowed me a deep appreciation of what it means to be a front-line healthcare employee as well as the importance and responsibility as an employer in our industry. As CEO of Odyssey, I believe that patient-centered care, quality, and our alignment with our treatment philosophy remain true differentiators in how we deliver care for our clients and support our employees. Our team commitment to our treatment philosophy, our value system, and our five-star service reflects a highly collaborative and talented team of individuals treating clients and families in need of our specialized treatment services across the nation.”
Odyssey’s diverse network of programs treats adults and adolescents with eating disorders, psychiatric disorders, dual diagnoses, and substance use disorder under three distinct networks: Psychiatric, Eating Disorder, and Outpatient. Providing a continuum of care that includes inpatient, intensive residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, detoxification, and transitional living programs, Odyssey operates facilities and provides affiliated outpatient services in over 20 locations and across nine states with over 300 total beds. Every year, we help thousands of clients on their recovery journeys by providing clinically excellent and individualized treatment delivered with care and compassion.
