In addition, he has been a board member of several major companies in the behavioral healthcare field and multi-site healthcare. Jerry was also the CEO of CRC Health, one of the nation’s largest providers of Behavioral Healthcare. CRC was a Bain Capital-sponsored company and was sold in 2015 to Acadia Healthcare for $1.2B – one of the largest deals transacted in behavioral healthcare. Jerry joined CRC Health Group in 2003 and was instrumental in developing it into the nation’s leading provider of behavioral treatment services.

Jerry held a number of senior operating roles at CRC and was appointed COO in 2010.
Prior to joining CRC, he was the Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Comprehensive Addictions Programs Inc. (CAPs). CAPs was a privately held company backed by several venture capital investors that, under his leadership, became a national, full-service addiction treatment provider with 18 programs. CAPS was a pioneer in identifying the burgeoning opiate epidemic and the development of medication addiction programs to respond to the problem. The company was acquired by CRC in February 2003. Before founding CAPS, he had a number of roles focused on development in the long-term care field. Rhodes was the Director of Development for Beverly Enterprises, at the time the nation’s largest publicly held nursing home company. Prior to his position at Beverly, he held several business development roles at Manor Care. Jerry is also on the boards of several companies that span diverse healthcare services for several major private equity firms, including Springstone Hospitals and National Spine and Pain.
