Creating a Bridge

FADAA and FBHA are encouraging the expansion of peer recovery services to assist in handoffs from emergency rooms to treatment centers.











Our Core Beliefs and Guiding Principles:

  • Addiction is a chronic disease that is amenable to preventive and treatment interventions.
  • Outcomes achieved in addictions treatment are comparable to other chronic diseases.
  • A continuum of evidence-based services should be available to meet the need.
  • Services are provided when stakeholders collaborate and services are effectively integrated.
  • Addiction treatment is a sound investment that saves taxpayer dollars, particularly in the criminal justice system.
  • Addiction and mental illness are frequently co-occurring and can be successfully managed in addiction programs.
  • Vocational components, childcare, and employment services are essential for effective treatment.
  • Staff are competent, well trained professionals who represent the community's diversity.

The Florida Behavioral Health Association (FBHA)  provides leadership on policy issues affecting Florida businesses providing prevention, treatment, and recovery efforts to their clients and communities.

FBHA achieves its goals through six divisions: Business, Children, Criminal Justice, Healthcare, Housing and Recovery, and Public Resource.
