 What people are saying about IHEC...

"Hands down, IHEC should be the number
one resource a new professional
consults when entering the
AOD field in higher Ed."
- Lyndsey Hawkins, MA, CPS
Interim Director of Wellness
Bradley University
"I am so grateful for IHEC.
 They are professional, personable, and
I would not be nearly as effective
in my job without them."
