It has a sophisticated direct to consumer marketing model, which includes a call centre, a national sales team and an industry leading web marketing programme.
The acquisition will serve as a platform for growth in a new substance use disorder service line for UHS.
Universal Health Services Board chairman Alan Miller said: "We are pleased to announce the forthcoming acquisition of Foundations.
"We were attracted to their proven track record of providing high-quality treatment and reputation for excellence in this very attractive market segment.
"They bring expertise as a published authority on integrated treatment and also have excellent clinical programmes and customer relationships."
