Welcome to the OTC Behavioral Health Support Program.
OTC designed its Associate of Applied Science in Behavioral Health Support (BHS) program to prepare students for employment in behavioral health and substance abuse treatment facilities immediately upon graduation. This hands-on program includes 360 hours of practicum experience in workforce settings. The A.A.S. in BHS provides both real world experience and specialized training. There are abundant local and statewide job opportunities in this field. Students will complete the program at an accelerated pace and graduate in a year and a half. After graduation, they are fully prepared to enter a career in this field.
Transfer agreements are in place for those students who would like to continue their education while working in the field. The A.A.S. differs from an A.A. in BHS, which is designed for students who do not desire to enter the workforce quickly and would prefer to have more flexibility in their scheduling.
