Mid-America ATTC serves the states of Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska (Region 7).
Mid-America ATTC Vision: All people accessing services for a substance use disorder in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, and Nebraska will receive treatment and recovery support rooted in evidence-based and promising practices.
