The Behavioral Health Association of Providers (BHAP) is a national membership association that provides education and advocacy for those in the behavioral health and addiction treatment industries. We are the leading and unifying voice of addiction-focused treatment programs.
Working in the behavioral health industry or managing an organization in the industry can be incredibly complex and filled with ever-changing information for compliance. BHAP gives you resources to stay on top of the rules and regulations for your organization to stay compliant.
BHAP was founded in March 2016, and we provide membership opportunities such as discounts on compliance services, educational opportunities such as CE-based webinars, and advocacy efforts to keep those in the industry aware of new laws and regulations that may be coming that will affect them. Formerly known as the American Addiction Treatment Association (AATA), we rebranded in April 2018 to broaden our scope.
