The Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network was established in 1993 by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). It is made up of 10 Domestic Regional Centers, 6 International HIV Centers, 2 National Focus Area Centers, and a Network Coordinating Office. The ATTC Network serves the 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Pacific Islands of Guam, American Samoa, Palau, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, and the Mariana Islands. The International HIV ATTCs serve Vietnam, Southeast Asia, South Africa, and Ukraine.
The goal of the ATTC Network is to:
- Accelerate the adoption and implementation of evidenced-based and promising addiction treatment and recovery-oriented practices and services;
- Heighten the awareness, knowledge, and skills of the workforce that addresses the needs of people with substance use or other behavioral health disorders and;
- Foster regional and national alliances among culturally diverse practitioners, researchers, policy makers, funders, and the recovery community.
