The high prevalence of co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders virtually guarantees that counselors, no matter the treatment setting, will encounter clients struggling with not one, but two or more disorders. The master of professional studies in integrated behavioral health (IBH) prepares counselors for this clinical reality. The IBH degree merges mental health and substance abuse education and training into a single, comprehensive and cohesive program. This synthesis represents an important and pioneering shift in the preparation of clinicians. The IBH is designed to fulfill education and training requirements for two licenses: Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC).
