Danbury behavioral health clinic owners agree to sell for $4M

The owners of Blue Sky Behavioral Health Clinic in Danbury want to retire and are seeking approval to sell their stakes in the clinic for $4 million, according to Office of Health Care Access filings.

Blue Sky provides day treatment services for adults with psychiatric, substance use disorders and co-occurring disorders who have commercial insurance or are self-pay. The buyer plans to participate in Medicaid as well, the filing states.

Alfred Bergman and Joseph Santoro, members of the selling entities, have owned Blue Sky since 2012.

The proposed buyer, Blue Sky Recovery LLC, will be led by CEO Avraham Schick, who has extensive experience founding, acquiring and managing chemical dependency, behavioral health and medication-assisted treatment programs in New York, according to the filing.

The deal would include Blue Sky's main facility at 124 Federal St. as well as a residential facility to be located several miles across town, according to filings.

In addition to participating in Medicaid, the buyer plans to maintain the company's existing services, which include a partial hospital program and an intensive outpatient program and expand access to medication-assisted treatment, the filing says. The buyer also expects to retain existing clinical staff and will contract with existing company management for transition services.
