Technology transfer is in our name, but do you really know what it is?
Even though the Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network has been a leading expert in the field of substance use disorders since 1993, we realize there are still some folks who don’t know who we are and what we do.
We provide professionals with free training, tools, and support to help those in recovery and facing substance use disorders. The ATTC Network offers evidence-informed education, technical assistance, and custom resources aimed at strengthening the skills of practitioners. By listening to the needs of local, regional, and national partners, the ATTC ensures it stays relevant and effective, working to empower professionals and foster a thriving, recovery-oriented system of care.
Recently, we launched a new series of
explainer videos that provide an overview of the organization’s mission and
services. The videos are available in both English and Spanish and are designed to be accessible to
a wide range of audiences.
In addition to these explainer videos, the ATTC Network recently celebrated its 30th anniversary. As part of this celebration, we released a timeline highlighting significant accomplishments over the past 30 years. The timeline includes information about how the organization has grown over time and how it has adapted to meet changing needs in the field of substance use disorders.
Our 30th anniversary celebration also included a virtual event that featured remarks from SAMHSA Assistant Secretary Dr. Miriam Delphin-Rittmon and Dr. Yngvild Olsen, director for the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT). During this event, attendees had the opportunity to learn more about the organization’s history and its plans for the future.
The ATTC Network is helping to empower practitioners and foster a thriving, recovery-oriented system of care.
