What We Do

Located at the University of Washington’s Addictions, Drug & Alcohol Institute (ADAI) as of October 2017, the NWATTC seeks to accelerate community-based implementation of evidence-based practices (EBPs) for treatment and recovery by:

  • Sponsoring training online and in-person to enhance clinical knowledge and skills, and adoption of EBPs,
  • Providing intensive technical assistance to support systems change and organizational efforts to implement EBPs, 
  • Offering consultation for systems-level change in the emerging new landscape for behavioral health care, 
  • Disseminating science-based information on EBPs, cultural competence, and more.

What is Technical Assistance

the Northwest ATTC reaches large segments of the addiction workforce in a multi-state region via diverse professional education activities. These activities are encompassed under a rubric of what is now commonly termed "technical assistance" (TA), which includes:

  • Universal TA: resource-sharing or one-time events like webinars that offer orienting information to promote awareness of a clinical practice
  • Targeted TA: serial learning processes that increase individual workforce members' skills, knowledge, and overall readiness to implement the clinical practice
  • Intensive TA: longitudinal and systems-level consultative support to health organizations to foster implementation and sustainment of a clinical practice by the workforce members they employ.
