Get to Know the Southeast ATTC

 

Southeast ATTC is devoted to cultivating effective evidence-based research and practices that improve treatment access and outcomes.  Our activities

  • foster cultural appropriateness, 

  • cultivate system change,

  • disseminate addiction information,

  • identify resources, and

  • promote science to service treatment approaches that support workforce development and practice improvement. 


To engage the treatment and recovery community, Southeast ATTC

  • sponsors and co-sponsors training events;
  • plans with public and private organizations in partnerships and collaborations;
  • addresses the special needs of specific populations to support cultural appropriateness; and
  • provides technical assistance to the addiction treatment community.


Southeast ATTC also provides continuing education in addiction treatment to pre-service and practicing professionals. We continue to expand our network of regional substance abuse professionals by recruiting students into the field of addictions and providing relevant academic curriculum and training. Addiction educators, the recovery population, clinicians in the areas of primary care, mental health and HIV/AIDS, community and faith based organizations also receive current information on addiction.
