Established in 1993 by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the ATTC Network is comprised of 10 Regional Centers, 4 National Focus Area Centers, and a Network Coordinating Office. The National Focus Area Centers work with Regional Centers (like the Central Rockies ATTC) to serve as subject matter experts, provide information on the latest research-based best practices, and coordinate efforts on topics of national focus.
The National American Indian & Alaska Native (AI & AN) ATTC serves the nation as a key resource for development of the behavioral workforce. The National AI & AN ATTC supports the adoption of culturally legitimate addiction treatment and recovery services for American Indian and Alaska Native clients with substance use disorders.
