Agencies, as well as other organizations, are now faced with a shortage of adequately prepared addictions leaders. Directors and senior level personnel, who are providing leadership in community-based addiction treatment agencies, are approaching retirement age, and there have been few educational opportunities to groom successors for these leadership positions. With this challenge in mind, the Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network, in partnership with SAMHSA/CSAT's Partners for Recovery and the Graduate School/USDA, is very pleased to offer a unique professional development opportunity.
The PFR/ATTC Network Leadership Institute is an intense leadership preparation program designed to cultivate the development of future addiction leaders. It provides professional development through a combination of evidenced-based training seminars, distance learning, and completion of a project within a six-month timeframe. Each individual partners with a mentor offering expertise vital in facilitating the development of future leaders.
