National American Indian and Alaskan Native ATTC
Our National Center provides education and training opportunities for individuals and groups involved in providing substance abuse treatment and counseling, including health professionals in primary prevention and treatment for substance abuse. We are housed in the University of Iowa College of Public Health, but offer services nationwide for consulting, technical assistance, and continuing education seminars. We focus specifically on the American Indian and Alaska Native (AI & AN) communities.
Our mission is to serve as national subject matter experts and key authorities on resources for the adoption of culturally appropriate addiction treatment/recovery services. In these roles, we aspire to support professionals working with AI & AN clients suffering from substance use and other behavioral health disorders, prominently including the AI & AN behavioral health workforce, using recognized state-of-the-art technology transfer principles.
