Focusing solely on adolescents, clients of Family First come from around the United States and internationally to seek treatment with the company due to its strong clinical reputation, and its highly focused treatment options that are teen-specific, trauma informed, and which address the entire family unit.

James McManus, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Family First, commented, “After interviewing numerous investment banking firms, I knew that Hexagon Capital Alliance was the right firm to work with due to its extensive experience within the behavioral health sector and its reputation for getting deals done. The Hexagon team served as my trusted advisor throughout the entire process and helped me close this transaction with the right partner for Family First. As a result, my team and I, along with our new partners, are excited to continue growing Family First into one of the top treatment programs for teens in the country.”
