National American Indian and Alaska 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 strengthen and promote systematic behavioral health practice improvements for Native providers in order to honor and contribute to the health and well-being of tribal and urban Indian communities, as well as training non-Native providers using culturally informed practices so that communities have the resources to care for their people in the most culturally informed and knowledge – based way and Native providers can determine how to integrate western practices into their traditional methods.
