Connections Wellness Group teaming up with Vertava Health to expand treatment for mental health and substance use disorders

 

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (February 4, 2021) –Connections Wellness Group today announced that they are joining forces with Vertava Health, a leading national behavioral healthcare system for mental health and substance use disorders, to expand options for patient care in the North Texas market.

“We are excited to join Vertava Health, a leading national behavioral healthcare system that provides a full continuum of services,” says Connections Wellness CEO Awstin Gregg. “Together we’ll now be able to offer a full suite of options to our patients, including inpatient services, and provide the best clinical care possible for each and every individual.”

This partnership comes at a critical time as the nation continues to struggle with substance use and mental health challenges during the COVID-19 crisis. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 40.9% of respondents surveyed in June reported at least one adverse mental or behavioral health condition, including depression, anxiety, PTSD and substance abuse, rates 3 to 4 times higher than a year ago. 10.7% of respondents reported seriously contemplating suicide in the last 30 days.

“We’re happy to have Connections Wellness Group join the Vertava Health team,” says Vertava Health President and CEO Matt Morgan. “This strategic move allows us to expand mental health services and our outpatient level of care to a wider group of patients including the adolescent population. This is another step that builds on our brand why, of pioneering care that empowers people so they can live out their best future.
