WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA -- Hanley Foundation proudly announces the acquisition of Origins Behavioral HealthCare, marking a momentous stride in its mission to eliminate addiction through prevention, advocacy, treatment, and recovery support. The agreement encompasses all Origins locations across Texas and Florida, including Hanley Center in West Palm Beach. It represents a united commitment to provide hope for individuals, families, and communities.
"We humbly recognize the significance of this extraordinary opportunity, said Chip James, Board Chairman of Hanley Foundation. “In this era of commercialization of medicine, it is rare, perhaps unheard of, for an addiction treatment facility to go from nonprofit to for-profit and back to nonprofit again. Our board of directors, management team, and medical and operational staff are deeply committed to the success of this big step toward eliminating addiction.”
This acquisition is not just a strategic move; it represents a deeply personal journey for the founders of Hanley Center. Reuniting the Hanley Foundation with the Hanley Center encapsulates a narrative coming full circle, reigniting the spirit and dedication that originally fueled the founders’ mission.
Mary Jane Hanley, co-founder of both Hanley Center and Hanley Foundation said, "At its 40-year milestone, nothing could make me happier than witnessing the reunification of Hanley Foundation and Hanley Center. You find great reward in helping others, especially if you walk down their path. It brings me comfort knowing that the original mission Jack Hanley and I, in partnership with the community, envisioned for the organization will be fulfilled for many years to come.”
The transition from a for-profit to a nonprofit structure marks a significant transformation for Origins Behavioral HealthCare and Hanley Center, organizations that have stood at the forefront of excellence in addiction treatment for many years. This monumental change holds immense potential, empowering the new entity to expand its reach and impact while offering essential care and support to a wider spectrum of individuals in need.
"Creating a full continuum of care, from prevention to treatment and offering innovative job training programs that teach applicable life skills, is key to revolutionizing the treatment industry and breaking the cycle of addiction,” added Dr. Rachel Docekal, CEO of Hanley Foundation. “We aim to change the conversation, fill the treatment gaps, establish a robust recovery community, and offer the support needed for individuals to live a life of possibility and purpose.” Docekal also emphasized gratitude for the level of quality care achieved under Origins Behavioral HealthCare’s present owners, TRT Holdings of Dallas, Texas.
“We know that Origins will be in great hands with the dedicated leadership of Hanley Foundation,” stated Jim Caldwell, Origins Behavioral HealthCare’s President and CEO. “Our shared approach to individual and family care, combined with the Foundation’s commitment to prevention and community-building, will bring the organization forward in a way that our entire team can be proud of.”
