Over the past few years we have seen a rapid growth in the behavioral health industry, driven in part by the national awareness surrounding the opioid crisis, including the passage of the Support for Patients and Communities Act. Other factors include greater political awareness around behavioral health and a broad-based push to further destigmatize mental illness.
With such growth, and with it the potential for new business opportunities, it is important to remember the broad array of unique licensing, regulatory, and compliance concerns in this space. Beyond dealing with these unique concerns operationally, any due diligence for a proposed merger or acquisition needs to take these concerns into account.
