What We Do
Building on a rich history, the ATTC Network continuously strives to improve the quality of addictions treatment and recovery services by facilitating alliances among front line counselors, treatment and recovery services agency administrators, faith-based organizations, policy makers, the health and mental health communities, consumers and other stakeholders. By connecting them to the latest research and information through activities such as skills training, academic education, online and distance education, conferences, workshops, and publications, the ATTC Network responds to the emerging needs of the field.
As a nationwide, multidisciplinary resource for professionals in the addictions treatment and recovery services field, the ATTC Network serves to:
- Raise awareness of evidence-based and promising treatment and recovery practices,
- Build skills to prepare the workforce to deliver state-of-the-art addictions treatment and recovery services, and
- Change practice by incorporating these new skills into everyday use for the purpose of improving addictions treatment and recovery outcomes.
