The purpose of the SAMHSA-funded Technology Transfer Centers (TTC) is to develop and strengthen the specialized behavioral healthcare and primary healthcare workforce that provides prevention, treatment, and recovery support services for substance use disorders and mental illness. The TTC program is comprised of three networks: the Addiction Technology Transfer Centers (ATTC), the Mental Health Technology Transfer Centers (MHTTC), and the Prevention Technology Transfer Centers (PTTC).
The ATTC Network is an international, multidisciplinary resource for professionals in the addictions treatment and recovery services field. Comprised of 10 Domestic Regional Centers, 6 International HIV Centers (funded by PEPFAR), 2 National Focus Area Centers, and a Network Coordinating Office, the ATTC Network works collaboratively to unify science, education and service to transform lives.
The MHTTC Network, with 10 Regional Centers, 2 National Focus Area Centers, and a Network Coordinating Office, develops and disseminates resources, and provides training and technical assistance, to accelerate the implementation of mental health related evidence-based practices.
