At least five state legislatures are considering bills to tighten oversight of methadone clinics after allegations that take-home doses of the drug are contributing to illegal street sales, misuse and deaths. The measures, if passed, could increase costs or limit revenue for the nation’s largest methadone chains - both of them backed by private equity firms: CRC Health, owned by Bain; and Colonial Management Group, which is in the portfolio of Warwick Group.
