Integrated Behavioral Health Academy

Centerstone’s Integrated Behavioral Health Academy is a partnership between Centerstone and the Indiana University School of Social Work, and we admitted our first Academy cohort in the fall of 2020. The Academy will consist of courses designed to prepare students for practice in mental health, substance use, and co-occurring disorders and to become dually-licensed as both a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor (LCAC).

Admitted students will join the top-ranked MSW program in the state of Indiana and simultaneously gain specialized experience at one of the largest mental health care organizations in the nation. Our mission is delivering care that changes people’s lives. We are here because we want to help people and make our communities be the best they can be.

Students will not only receive an exceptional social work educational experience, but will also receive additional training in evidence-based counseling approach. Centerstone is commitment to clinical excellence and student learning. During this experience, students will receive training in Motivational Interviewing (Mi) and Mapping Enhanced Counseling. Students will have the opportunity to learn several additional evidenced-based practices including but not limited to: Helping Men Recover/Helping Women Recover, Seeking Safety, and Matrix IOP.

Students will receive a $5,000 stipend while completing a two-semester practicum placement at Centerstone during the final year in the program. They will receive a priority interview for employment at Centerstone after they finish their MSW, with additional financial incentive provided by Centerstone for employees who earn their LCSW and LCAC after completion of the Academy.
