Training and Technical Assistance
Training and Technical Assistance (TA)
The ATTCs support national and regional activities focused on preparing tools needed by practitioners to improve the quality of service delivery and to providing intensive technical assistance to provider organizations to improve their processes and practices in the delivery of effective SUD treatment and recovery services.
What is TA?
Technical assistance services are defined as negotiated series of activities designed to reach a valued outcome.
Technical Assistance (TA) falls into one of the following:
- Universal - is information provided to independent users through their own initiative, resulting in minimal interaction with ATTC staff.
- Targeted - is based on needs common to multiple recipients and not extensively individualized. A relationship is established between the TA recipient and one or more ATTC staff.
- Intensive - requires a stable, ongoing relationship between the ATTC program staff and the TA recipient and is provided in accordance with a plan developed between the ATTC and the TA recipient. Intensive TA should result in changes to policy, program, practice, or operations that support increased recipient capacity of improved outcomes at one or more systems levels.]
