About our national organization

The ATTC Network was established in 1993 by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, or SAMHSA, as a multidisciplinary resource for professionals providing substance use disorder screening, treatment and recovery support. All of the network centers provide information, training and consultation on implementing evidence-based substance use disorder treatment and recovery services.
