Northeast & Caribbean ATTC

Welcome to the Northeast & Caribbean Addiction Technology Transfer Center (NeC-ATTC) serving HHS Region 2: New York, New Jersey, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.

The NeC-ATTC is managed by The National Development and Research Institutes (NDRI), a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing scientific knowledge in the areas of drug and alcohol abuse, treatment and recovery, therapeutic communities, mental health, criminal justice, prevention and epidemiology, and HIV, AIDS, and HCV.

This is accomplished by fostering relationships at the federal, state, local, international, philanthropic and private sector levels, with the goal of reducing health and social disparities by creating sustainable change.
