Odyssey Behavioral Healthcare




Brentwood, TN – February 2019 – Odyssey Behavioral Healthcare (“Odyssey”), a portfolio company of a fund affiliated with The Carlyle Group, acquired the River Centre Clinic, an eating disorder treatment center in Sylvania, Ohio on February 8, 2019.

Odyssey, headquartered in Brentwood, Tennessee, has a diverse network of intensive residential behavioral health facilities across the treatment spectrum. Odyssey provides a continuum of care treating eating disorders, psychiatric, and dual diagnosis disorders. The acquisition of the River Centre Clinic will expand Odyssey’s operations to seven behavioral health locations with 264 beds and affiliated outpatient services in six states.

Founded in 1996, the River Centre provides innovative treatment using a well-established therapy model for adults and adolescents suffering from eating disorders and co-occurring mental health conditions. Customized treatment plans with a comprehensive spectrum of services are created to meet the complex and specific needs of each client. The National Eating Disorder Association estimates that just over 20 million women and 10 million men in the United States will suffer from an eating disorder at some point in their lifetime. With such staggering numbers, the treatment provided at River Center across multiple levels of care is vital to helping those who are recovering.

“We are excited to add the River Centre to the Odyssey Behavioral Healthcare network,” said Odyssey CEO, Scott Kardenetz. “Our goal is to provide the highest quality services through evidence-based treatment, compassionate individualized patient care, client-focused customer service, and top of the line facilities and amenities. The acquisition of the River Centre allows us to move forward with our goal and continue to grow our eating disorder services and offer clients specialized treatment in a premier behavioral healthcare facility.”
