Purpose of the National Hispanic and Latino ATTC
The purpose of the National Hispanic and Latino ATTC is to develop and strengthen the workforce that provides addiction treatment and recovery support services to Hispanic and Latino populations across the United States. This will be accomplished by using diverse technology transfer strategies, services, and practices that have demonstrated effectiveness and are appropriate to Hispanic and Latino populations in need of substance abuse treatment services.
A close alignment with SAMHSA Strategic Initiatives is explicitly integrated to the development and implementation of a Strategic Plan to ensure Hispanic and Latino populations in need of substance abuse treatment are seen as key and given priority among stakeholders.
All Project goals promote the adoption of evidence-based/promising practices and the outcomes of state-of-the-art addictions research.
1. Serve as the national expert and key resource for the workforce that provides addiction treatment and recovery support services to reduce health disparities among Hispanic and Latino populations.
2. Ensure Hispanic and Latino populations are seen as key and given priority among stakeholders (e.g., SSAs, local governments, addictions professionals, primary care services, mental health services).
3. Broaden the ATTCs scope on implementation practices and system transformation focusing on Hispanic and Latino effective and cultural competent practices.
4. Develop and strengthen the skills and capabilities of the workforce that provides addiction treatment and recovery support services to Hispanics and Latinos through innovative technology transfer strategies, so they overcome the health disparities that hinder their access to quality substance abuse disorders treatment.
5. Build a collaborative and communication relationship with other training, TA centers, and technology transfer providers to improve services in order to avoid duplication of efforts.
