Family Help & Wellness, a highly successful group of owner-operated adolescent behavioral health programs, recently announced that they now operate 12 programs and serve over 1,000 students each year.
Family Help & Wellness (FHW) was founded with a single wilderness therapy program in 2008 and has since grown to include a diagnostic and assessment center, residential treatment centers, transition programs, programs for youth with special needs, and other wilderness therapy programs.
“I am extraordinarily proud of what Family Help & Wellness is,” said Founder and CEO Tim Dupell. “I am even more excited about what Family Help & Wellness will be. We are a growing group of partners delivering exceptional adolescent behavioral healthcare to help families throughout the U.S. every single day.”
FHW spent years developing a unique partnership model of owner-operated programs that allow the individual programs to focus on doing what they do best: deliver outstanding care for teens and families. FHW’s program partners make clinical, operational and strategic decisions while FHW provides financial stability, accounting and marketing services. This has led to successful growth and exceptional outcomes for struggling youth and their families.
It was also announced that industry veteran Mike Wellons has been appointed to Chief Development Officer for FHW. In his new role, Mike will be responsible for the company’s continued growth by identifying program start-up and acquisition opportunities.
Mike joins FHW with several decades of development experience. His background includes new market entry and positioning, as well as development of new product lines in the behavioral healthcare treatment services field. Prior to joining FHW, Mike most recently served as managing director for a consulting business for program owners/founders and financial/strategic clients seeking to enter or expand in the behavioral health field. Mike has had additional senior leadership roles within behavioral health entities, both publicly owned and private equity backed, in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
“We are very pleased to welcome Mike to our talented team and look forward to his efforts to build relationships with other industry leaders seeking to create or grow their business by partnering with Family Help & Wellness,” said Dupell.
Family Help & Wellness is an alliance of owner-operated behavioral health programs across the United States serving youth and families with special needs, emotional, behavioral and substance abuse issues. Each of its 12 programs was designed and developed by passionate and dedicated owners who have a depth of experience and an unwavering commitment to the success of every individual.
