Elements Behavioral Health Expands in the South with Acquisition of COPAC
COPAC, a leading substance abuse treatment and dual diagnosis program in Mississippi, joins the Elements Behavioral Health family of treatment centers.
Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) September 11, 2014 – Elements Behavioral Health, a leading nationwide provider of addiction and mental health treatment programs, announced today that it has acquired COPAC, a Joint Commission accredited treatment program located outside of Jackson, Mississippi.
COPAC was founded in 1979 by a group of recovering physicians dedicated to providing extended stay treatment for chemically dependent adults. Over the last few years, the center has expanded to include detox, primary treatment through gender-specific campuses, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient programs. COPAC accepts dual diagnosis clients and has tracks for individuals with eating disorders, sexual compulsivity and compulsive gambling. It also offers a highly regarded professionals program.
COPAC has attracted highly qualified and compassionate staff members who are dedicated to providing the best possible service to their clients. Dr. Lloyd Gordon, Fellow of the American Society of Addiction Medicine, serves as medical director. Board-certified psychiatrist Dr. Alexis Polles is director of psychiatry.
Located only 20 minutes from the Jackson-Evers International Airport, COPAC has served clients from all 50 states and 14 countries. The residential program is located on a bucolic 23-acre campus with men’s and women’s living areas separated by a tranquil pond and tree-lined area.
“After my partners and I were approached by Elements, we learned how it could take COPAC to the next level by providing clinical, marketing and financial resources that we didn’t have,” said Dr. Stacy Hughes, CEO of COPAC. “We spent over a year getting to know the Elements organization and concluded that it would take good care of our employees and ensure the best future for our program.”
“We are pleased to welcome COPAC into the Elements family of programs,” said Dr. David Sack, CEO of Elements Behavioral Health. “We have great respect for what COPAC has accomplished over its rich 35-year history and the loyalty of the facility’s staff.”
