BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Civitas Solutions, Inc. (“Civitas”) (NYSE: CIVI) today announced that it successfully completed the acquisition of Unique Options, LLC, a provider of vocational rehabilitation services for individuals who have sustained traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in the state of Michigan.

Founded in 2004 and located in Warren, Michigan, Unique Options supports more than 100 individuals in metropolitan Detroit through community-based programming focused on training and employment placements for individuals who have experienced a TBI.

“Unique Options has a compelling track record of helping the individuals they support achieve successful, long-term employment, making it an excellent addition to our SRS programs in Michigan,” said Bruce Nardella, president and CEO of Civitas Solutions. “We are pleased to welcome the Unique Options team and the individuals they support to Civitas.”
