AAC Holdings, Inc. Reaches Agreement with Unionized Workers at Sunrise House in New Jersey

Company Release - 6/19/2017 5:00 PM ET

BRENTWOOD, Tenn., June 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- AAC Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: AAC) reached an agreement with 120 local workers represented by their union, Health Professionals & Allied Employees, AFT/AFL-CIO (HPAE), at the Company's Sunrise House treatment facility in Lafayette, New Jersey. Once the facility is relicensed, which is expected to occur in the next 30 days, AAC expects to begin admitting clients for treatment. Sunrise House had been closed since May 23, 2017, as a result of a labor dispute and AAC's decision to transfer as many clients as possible to other treatment facilities in order to continue uninterrupted care necessary to ensure their health and safety.

"AAC's priorities remain focused on delivering exceptional clinical quality to our clients and their families and fighting the national epidemic of substance abuse that is wrecking our nation," noted Michael Cartwright, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AAC Holdings. "Many of us have spent our entire careers addressing this crisis, are in recovery ourselves or have made this industry our life's passion. It is unfortunate that negotiations such as the one with HPAE take the course that they do, but we are pleased to resolve it and be able to get clients back in treatment at Sunrise House as soon as possible."
