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.

NeC-ATTC mission is to build relationships and bridge the gap between research and practice in the public health arena to ensure the advancement of state-of-the-art techniques, evidence- based and promising practices, and supports for non-physician health and human services providers and other practitioners. 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.

NDRI is partnered with The Institute of Research, Education & Services in Addiction (IRESA) at the Universidad Central Del Caribe, School of Medicine in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. IRESA is responsible for the delivery of services in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands.
