Pacific Southwest ATTC
The Pacific Southwest ATTC, which covers Arizona, California, Hawaii, Nevada, American Samoa, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, Republic of the Marshall Islands, and Republic of Palau, is designed to enhance knowledge of and expertise in providing effective substance use disorder treatment and recovery services by disseminating evidence-based clinical and research information. The Pacific Southwest ATTC develops, revises, and distributes curricula and other resources and products on a variety of SUD topics, and forms partnerships with local and regional stakeholders to ensure that the training and technical assistance needs of the Region are identified and met.
The overarching goals of the Pacific Southwest ATTC are to:

- Upgrade the standards of professional SUD practice to increase the number, quality, and cultural humility of substance use disorder treatment and recovery practitioners
- Provide stand-alone and sequenced learning events to help practitioners build their skills to promote systems change and accelerate the adoption and implementation of evidence-based practices
- Develop scientifically based substance use disorder curricula and encourage academic institutions to train and educate pre-service students and practitioners.
