FRANKLIN, Tenn., Sept. 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Acadia Healthcare (NASDAQ: ACHC) has become the select provider of behavioral health and addiction treatment services to the FBINAA (FBI National Academy Associates), the second largest association in law enforcement with 44 chapters internationally.
"This relationship symbolizes the quality of care that Acadia provides at its 250 facilities across the United States. The FBINAA's reputation and commitment to education & care for its members is extraordinary. First responders deal with crises and tragedies we can barely imagine; full-spectrum behavioral health support is the least we can do to help them in their journeys. We are humbled to be able to embrace this responsibility," said Joey Jacobs, Chairman and CEO of Acadia Healthcare.
Acadia is setting up a dedicated 24/7 hotline into which FBINAA members and affiliates can engage in confidential assessments of their needs, and placement into the right program or facility.

And if one of our programs isn't the right fit, we have hundreds of trusted partners across the country. Our goal is to support those in need in any way we can."
