National opioid treatment company eyes Hartford acquisition

Community Substance Abuse Centers Inc., (CSAC) which does business as Health Care Resource Centers and includes a Hartford opioid treatment facility, is seeking state approval to transfer stock ownership to a Texas company that is the second-largest provider of opioid addiction treatment services in terms of facilities operated.

BayMark Health Services Inc. of Lewisville, Texas, which treats more than 25,000 patients per day across 11 states, would acquire 100 percent of the stock of CSAC from Edward J. Blain and Dr. Steven J. Kassels, according to a Certificate of Need (CON) filed with the Connecticut Office of Health Care Access. The deal includes BayMark's acquisition of two separate entities Blain and Kassels own that operate 15 other opioid treatment clinics in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.

Purchase terms were not available.

The Health Care Resource Center in Hartford is located at 55 Fishfry St., and serves adult men and women affected by opioid addiction. It serves more than 600 patients per year, many of them on Medicaid, the CON said.

The clinic's operations would remain largely unchanged under the deal, serving the same area and patient population and staff, the CON said.
