Behavioral Health


A Certified Behavioral Health Technician (CBHT) designation is an entry-level credential for person’s who assist primary counselors and therapeutic staff by providing clinical support services to adults or children who are receiving substance abuse or mental health services in residential programs, in-patient settings or community based programs.  The CBHT requires a minimum of a high school diploma or general equivalency degree.
