Riverside Adds Facilities, Expertise to Castlewood
Firm Acquires Additional Eating Disorder Treatment Assets
The Riverside Company has added the eating disorder assets of La Ventana Treatment Programs to its Castlewood platform.
This acquisition includes five eating disorder programs located in California, including two residential treatment centers in Thousand Oaks, one outpatient facility in Westlake Village and one residential and one outpatient program in Santa Barbara. La Ventana will continue to operate the mental health and substance abuse treatment centers and programs it has provided for the past 11 years.
“This addition establishes Castlewood as one of the largest providers of eating disorder treatment in California,” said Riverside Managing Partner Loren Schlachet. “We are pleased to expand Castlewood’s programs so its leading clinical team can serve more patients struggling with eating disorders.”
The scourge of eating disorders continues to grow, making increased access to treatment centers vital. The market for eating disorder treatment continues to grow, and access to trusted treatment programs is a critical issue for patients and referral sources.
“Over the past six months, Castlewood has added a number of outstanding clinicians to the organization,” said Riverside Partner Joe Lee. “We are pleased to expand Castlewood’s capacity to deliver its excellent clinical programming to more patients.”
Riverside continues to help Castlewood grow through increasing awareness of its offerings, investment to increase capacity and add-on acquisitions.
Working with Schlachet and Lee on the deal for Riverside were Principal John McKernan Senior Associate David Bao, Operating Partner Frank Coliano and Finance Director Mark Pigott. Origination Partner Jim Butterfield sourced the deal for Riverside.
