ATTC Network and AMERSA Announce New Partnership

Maureen Fitzgerald
ATTC Network Coordinating Office 

The Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network has been working since 1993 to improve the clinical practices used to treat substance use disorders (SUDs). Through national and regional technical assistance and training efforts, the Network promotes the implementation of evidence-based and promising practices in SUD treatment and recovery services.

The Association for Medical Education and Research in Substance Abuse (AMERSA), founded in 1976, carries a similar mission: “to improve health and well-being through interdisciplinary leadership in substance use education, research, clinical care and policy.”

In 2018, the ATTC Network and AMERSA are joining forces through a new partnership, with a shared goal to promote interprofessional collaboration in addressing and reducing the impact of substance use disorders.
