Multiple addiction treatment centers (ATCs) for the treatment of patients suffering from mental health and substance use disorders (SUDs)


We are launching multiple EB-5 projects that we anticipate will be granted expedited processing by USCIS due to the urgent humanitarian need that our project will be serving: addiction and mental-health treatment. It is no secret that the U.S. is deeply mired in an addiction epidemic made worse by the Covid-19 pandemic.

For EB-5 investors, this means waiting a few months (compared to a few years for non-expedited projects) for USCIS to approve the investor’s I-526 petition, the first key step in the two-part process for earning a conditional green card.

  • Direct EB-5 investment has no expiration date (unlike regional center investments)
  • $750,000, which means lower risk for your investment and job creation since the business has more capital to work with.
  • TEA qualified
  • Project is addiction treatment centers – tremendous demand with limited supply
  • Potential for expedited processing
  • $75,000 admin fee

Millions suffer from mental health and SUDs – in 2019 over 20 million people in the U.S. suffered from a SUD during the past year. Drug overdose deaths are now the leading cause of death in the U.S. The U.S. government at all levels recognize this as a national crisis. See President Joe Biden’s opioid plan at While demand for treatment has skyrocketed, the supply of available services has not kept pace.
