Keyport, N.J. & Pittsburgh, Pa. — Pinnacle Treatment Centers, a provider of both drug-free inpatient/outpatient treatment and medically assisted treatment and counseling for drug addiction, has named Joseph L. Pritchard vice president of residential treatment centers and acting executive director of Endeavor House, Keyport, N.J., effective Oct. 31.

Formerly vice president of Midwest operations for CRC Health Group, Inc., Pritchard was responsible for 21 clinics and residential treatment programs in 11 states representing over 16,000 patients, 900 employees and $110 million in revenue and $44 million in EBITDA.

Headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pa., Pinnacle Treatment Centers is comprised of eight medically assisted treatment clinics in Pennsylvania, five in New Jersey and one multi-site, drug-free inpatient/outpatient treatment facility in New Jersey. The company has achieved double-digit growth since its inception in 2006 and is on track to develop three additional outpatient clinics and acquire a residential center in the coming year.

“Joe’s extensive expertise in managing both drug-free and medically-assisted treatment centers and clinics, as well as his proven ability to work in a rapidly expanding healthcare organization make him an ideal addition to Pinnacle,” notes Ken Kessler, MD and CEO of Pinnacle Treatment Centers.

During his tenure at CRC Health Group, Mr. Pritchard worked to take multiple companies (through acquisition) and integrate them into one quality operating system, which ultimately led to a 28 percent year-over-year growth in revenue.

“Our two-fold model of providing comprehensive treatment solutions for addiction, combined with our aggressive strategic growth plan, will give Joe the perfect opportunity to put his skills to good use,” said Kessler.
