The Addiction Technology Transfer Centers Cooperative Agreements program provides grants to develop and strengthen the specialized behavioral healthcare and primary healthcare workforce that provides substance use disorder (SUD) treatment and recovery support services, including the following activities:

  • Accelerating the adoption and implementation of evidence-based and promising treatment and recovery-oriented practices and services
  • Heightening the awareness, knowledge, and skills of the workforce that addresses the needs of people with substance use or other co-occurring health disorders
  • Fostering regional and national alliances among culturally diverse practitioners, researchers, policy makers, funders, and the recovery community

Regional Centers will be required to work together to:

  1. Prepare tools and strategies needed to improve the quality of service delivery
  2. Provide intensive technical assistance to improve processes and practices in the delivery of SUD treatment and recovery services

The focus is on helping states, health authorities, and healthcare providers through the use of training and technical assistance, including use of technologies such as smartphones and web-based technology, in urban and rural areas. This effort is expected to result in an increase of client access to treatment and recovery supports, client retention, and measurably improved client outcomes.

A detailed description of expectations and required activities is provided in the application instructions.
