Addiction Technology Transfer Center

Description of Collaborative Activity:

NIDA initiated a historic partnership with the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to expedite the dissemination of NIDA’s research results into the addiction treatment field. Blending teams composed of NIDA researchers, community treatment providers and trainers from SAMHSA’s Addiction Technology Transfer Centers (ATTC) work closely together to create innovative Blending products. Based on recently tested NIDA research, the Blending Teams design user-friendly products for clinical practitioners to use during treatment. Completed products include training packages composed of informational manuals, PowerPoint presentations, videos, CDs, curricula and annotated bibliographies.
