In an effort to help those who are helping others, AAC is excited to offer 3 scholarships for those studying in the fields of behavioral health, counseling, psychology, social work, nursing or related sciences. In 2015, acknowledging the growing need for qualified addiction and mental health professionals to help those struggling with addiction and co-occurring disorders, AAC decided to launch an educational scholarship program to assist students who were enrolled in college programs in the area of Behavioral Health.


They established our Behavioral Health scholarship awards to provide financial assistance that to would enable undergraduate and graduate students to pursue careers in the areas of behavioral health and addiction-related studies.
