In an effort to better understand the needs of providers in the region, Mountain Plains ATTC conducted a survey of SUD services in Region 8, which includes the states of Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming, to determine training/technical assistance needs. The survey was distributed using email list serves available through the Single State Authority (SSA) offices and through provider contact lists within the Mountain Plains ATTC database.
