Compiled by ATTC/NIATx staff and directors
This month marks a decade of partnership and collaboration between the ATTC Network and NIATx on our shared blog. In that time, we’ve published more than 300 articles, including multiple series, from the pearls of wisdom we’ve learned over the years, to all the many new places you can implement the NIATx process.
Together we have compiled a list of 10 of our favorite posts from the last 10 years.
The goal of the Embracing Change series was to showcase the
ways each of the regional and population-specific ATTCs had found to survive, adapt,
and thrive during COVID-19.
The ATTC/NIATx blog is a place where we sometimes invite our
friends and collaborators to share their thoughts on issues affecting our industry,
like this guest editorial from the Justice Community Opioid Innovation Network
Our Tech Transfer In Action series focused on ways the ATTC Network delivers to
the communities we serve. This article looks at the syndemic approach deployed
by the New England ATTC to address addiction, COVID-19, and structural racism.
“A fundamental tool in the Great Lakes ATTC’s effort to
accelerate EPB implementation is the NIATx model,
developed in 2003 as a demonstration project supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and SAMHSA… Since then, more than 50
peer-reviewed articles have documented the use of the NIATx model in adopting
evidence-based practices in addiction treatment, mental health, HIV treatment,
child welfare, criminal justice, and other human services settings.”
