The FHE Health “Hope for Healing” Scholarship

Rates of drug and alcohol addiction and suicide are on the rise in this country, while behavioral health professionals who can meet the urgent need for treatment are in ever shorter supply. Now FHE Health is doing its part to address the problem. The “Hope for Healing” Scholarship is our effort to encourage more of America’s best and brightest students to pursue a rewarding and impactful vocation in the field of addiction and mental health treatment.
