Membership Benefits

The Ohio Council provides numerous membership benefits in four key areas: policy and legislative advocacy, member support and technical assistance, educational opportunities, and product and service development (generally and through endorsed vendor programs). In addition, members can take advantage of access to premium products and services that help them run and grow their organizations. Scroll down to learn more about each category of benefits.

Policy and Advocacy
Behavioral health is a highly regulated industry, and the legislative and rule-making functions of the state and federal governments can have significant impacts on the operations of behavioral health and substance use disorder treatment providers. By joining The Ohio Council, provider organizations can make their voices heard at the Ohio Statehouse and on Capitol Hill as part of our efficient and effective advocacy program. The Ohio Council government relations team routinely represents members before legislative committees, submits comments on important rulemaking processes, and engages with policymakers in person and through the OC-PAC to ensure that behavioral health practitioners are included in conversations that affect them. Join us today and take your spot at the decision-making table!
