Virtual Reality Tx

Through application of Virtual Reality (VR), we can aid therapeutic treatment for anxiety, depression, stress, obsession-compulsive disorder, addiction, and other disorders. Outpatient behavioral therapy can now be personalized to show drastic differences in emotional reactions. VR brings real-world scenarios to life during therapeutic sessions. VR simulations become effective ancillary for therapy tools.

In 2010, BSC was accredited by the State of Illinois’ Certification Board (IAODAPCA) to provide training and education for prospective students who are interested in obtaining credentials to become certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors (CADC) at the CADC School near Chicago, IL.

At Behavioral Services Center, the cost to attend BSC’s CADC School near Chicago comes to under $100 per credit hour. There is a total of 16 semester credit hours (240 clock hours) of specified course work. This includes up to 300 hours of practicum (internship). Classes are held once a week on Saturday mornings.

The financial and temporal costs associated with obtaining a CADC at BSC’s CADC school near Chicago, per the requirements of the Certification Board(IAODAPCA), are as follows: 16 semester credit hours (240 clock hours) of specified coursework 300 hours of practicum (internship) 1-2 years of paid work experience (depending on level of education completed) BSC’s program ends up costing under $100.00 per credit hour. Both practicum and paid work experience can be gained in-house, working with a diverse population of people.

There are several local institutions of higher learning where a person can go within the state to obtain their CADC. However, the costs and hours are far less feasible for a person getting by on a limited income, while trying to make ends meet and/or attending school. Therefore, BSC offers the right amount of flexibility and opportunity for someone in that situation
