Behavioral Health Aide Program

Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) initiated the Behavioral Health Aide Program in 2009 and oversees/provides the training for the knowledge and skills necessary for certification through the CHAP Certification Board as a Behavioral Health Aide at various levels of practice.

BBAHC currently has seven Behavioral Health Aide (BHA) positions. BHA’s are State Qualified Addiction Professional and ANTHC Certified Village-Based Providers, each working from a home village and additional assigned village of service. Services are provided in person, by video conferencing or phone.

BHA’s work five days a week six hours a day. Following a substance use assessment, patients can expect to receive a treatment recommendation letter within two weeks, by certified mail to their stated address. It is then the patient’s responsibility to follow up with instructions on the referral letter.
