Illinois Association for Behavioral Health

(formerly IADDA)

is a statewide organization representing addiction and mental illness prevention, treatment and recovery services agencies, staff, consumers, affiliated organizations, and corporations.


Our Mission

The mission of the Illinois Association for Behavioral Health (IABH) is to advocate for sound public policies in the behavioral health field on behalf of clinicians, consumers, youth, family members, and individuals in recovery who are in need of services.  


We Envision

a healthy society in which:

  • Everyone battling addiction or mental illness have access to effective treatment
  • More people are in recovery
  • Communities actively participate in prevention and health promotion
  • Laws, public policies, and culture enhance everyone's well-being


We Educate

about the importance of Behavioral Health while sharing the message that addiction and mental illness are preventable, effective treatment strategies exist, and recovery is possible!  Our staff and members accomplish this through strategic advocacy efforts, comprehensive media campaigns, community forums, town hall meetings, letter writing, and much more.
