Bluestar’s strategic expertise in the behavioral health sector led to a mutually beneficial partnership with HereNow Help, an early-stage company seeking to establish connections within the industry. Introduced by a third party, the collaboration began as a simple introduction but evolved into a dynamic relationship that propelled HereNow Help’s growth through strategic introductions and business agreements.


1.) Initial Engagement:

Over the course of several years, Bluestar and HereNow Help developed a strong partnership based on shared goals and values. Bluestar consistently introduced HereNow Help to a diverse range of behavioral health service providers, catering to their unique needs and specialties. These introductions weren’t mere transactions; they were carefully curated connections that aligned with HereNow Help’s vision and growth trajectory.

3.) Transformative Introductions:

Bluestar’s role in introducing HereNow Help to various service providers yielded significant results. The introductions led to the establishment of numerous business agreements, reflecting the value of a well-established network and a shared commitment to driving the behavioral health sector forward. These agreements encompassed a spectrum of providers, from small outpatient facilities to residential treatment centers and even large corporate organizations.

4.) Continued Success:

As of today, the partnership between Bluestar and HereNow Help continues to thrive. Bluestar’s ongoing efforts have positioned HereNow Help as a prominent player in the behavioral health space, consistently securing business agreements with various service providers. The scope of these partnerships showcases the depth and breadth of Bluestar’s network and their ability to match HereNow Help with the right partners.

Seamless Success in Multi-Site Addiction Treatment Company Sale: A multi-site addiction treatment company owner, connected with Bluestar seeking assistance with potential buyer introductions for a future sale. This initial interaction marked the beginning of a successful partnership that eventually culminated in the sale of the company, thanks to Bluestar’s comprehensive expertise and extensive industry connections.


The owner’s objective was to find a reliable partner to facilitate a smooth and successful sale when the time was right. Bluestar’s challenge was to build trust, foster a strong relationship, and be ready to assist when the owner signaled their readiness to sell.


A year later, the owner re-engaged with Bluestar, expressing their readiness to sell the company. Bluestar’s industry expertise immediately came into play as they identified potential buyers and arranged introduction calls. These introductory discussions paved the way for deeper negotiations, leading to a Letter of Intent (LOI).
Bluestar’s role extended beyond introductions. They provided invaluable guidance and support throughout the due diligence process. When external challenges arose, such as the unexpected crash of the USA banking environment, Bluestar demonstrated its resourcefulness by connecting the buyers with multiple active lenders specialized in the industry.


The deal was successfully closed in 2023, with the owner/operators choosing to stay with the company post-close. Bluestar’s local connections within the state, combined with their extensive network of buyers, proved to be instrumental in navigating the complex sale process. The owners expressed their appreciation for Bluestar’s dedication, noting that their deep connections with both buyers and resources significantly contributed to the execution of the deal.
This case study stands as a testament to Bluestar’s commitment to building strong relationships, leveraging their industry expertise, and providing comprehensive support throughout every stage of the transaction. By offering tailored solutions and capitalizing on their vast network, Bluestar continues to empower businesses in the behavioral healthcare sector to achieve their goals and unlock their true potential.
