The Culture at Acadia Healthcare

Acadia Healthcare promotes a culture of empowerment, innovation, and excellence. We are honored to be a respected leader within the behavioral healthcare space, and we work diligently every day to ensure that every member of the Acadia team has the tools and support they need to improve our organization and enhance our industry.

Setting the Standard for Excellence

Acadia Healthcare is committed to establishing and demonstrating the highest standards for effective patient care, positive community involvement, and responsible corporate leadership. This commitment extends from our corporate headquarters in Franklin, Tennessee, to our network’s 593 facilities in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom.

At both the corporate and facility levels, each member of the Acadia team plays a role in this effort. We promote a culture of empowerment, collaboration, and accountability, so every employee has the opportunity to enhance their skills, improve our organization, and expand Acadia’s ability to be the provider of choice to individuals and families whose live have been impacted by mental and behavioral health challenges.

Industry Leadership

Acadia Healthcare is the largest network of behavioral healthcare facilities in the United States. We are also an international organization, with several locations in the United Kingdom. The size of our organization and the scope our services ensure that our efforts will be recognized throughout the U.S. and abroad.

We take this responsibility extremely seriously, and we are dedicated to leveraging our capabilities to benefit the entire behavioral healthcare industry. Our size and scope provide us with unparalleled opportunities to identify best practices and share insights, but our position as a respected leader in the behavioral healthcare space is a direct result of the quality of our services, the expertise of our professionals, and the dedication of the entire Acadia team.

Tradition & Innovation

At first glance, the terms tradition and innovation may appear to be opposites. At Acadia Healthcare, they are fundamental elements of our ability to provide superior service while advancing our industry.

Although Acadia is a relatively young company, facilities within our network have been providing superior service for decades. The professionals who staff our organization at both the corporate and facility levels bring hundreds of years of collective experience to their positions. This rich history and expansive expertise, combined with our company-wide focus on data-driven decisions and evidence-based service, has allowed us to identify the time-tested principles and practices that are most beneficial to our organization, our patients, and our partners.

At the same time, our teams remain at the forefront of the effort to provide more efficient and beneficial services to the individuals and families who turn to us in times of need. Every day, as many as 70,000 children, adolescents, and adults receive care from facilities in the Acadia network. Every one of these interactions provides us with an opportunity to add to our knowledge base, expand our capabilities, and enhance the effectiveness of our organization.

Teamwork & Collaboration

At Acadia Healthcare, we are infinitely proud of the immensely talented individuals who work at both the corporate and facility levels. Each member of the Acadia family brings tremendous value to their positions. However, what’s most impressive about this group is their willingness to join in active collaboration to create a vibrant and dynamic organization that embodies the saying that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Interpersonal support is an essential element of successful recovery from mental and behavioral healthcare challenges. Every day at Acadia facilities, treatment professionals work to strengthen bonds between members of families who have been torn apart by the scourge of addiction, help individuals overcome the isolation of mental illness, and connect people with the community-based resources that will guide their continued progress after they have transitioned out of our care.

This focus on teamwork, interpersonal support, and beneficial collaboration is also a key contributor to our ability to thrive as an organization. Members of the Acadia team share their insights, educate their colleagues, support each other through challenges, and inspire each other to reach new heights.

Together, we are creating a better Acadia every single day, while simultaneously expanding access to superior behavioral healthcare for individuals and families throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom.
