The Pacific Southwest Addiction Technology Transfer Center (Pacific Southwest ATTC, HHS Region 9), 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 and expertise in substance use disorder treatment and recovery by disseminating clinical and research information.

  • Enhance knowledge and expertise in addiction treatment and recovery services by disseminating clinical and research information
  • Upgrade the standards of professional practice for addiction workers to increase the number, quality, and cultural competence of substance abuse treatment professionals
