Description

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) announces the availability of two-year supplemental funding to enable one grantee from the fiscal year (FY) 2012 Addiction Technology Transfer Centers (ATTC) cohort to expand/enhance grant activities required under the 2012 Request for Applications (RFA) by developing a Pregnant and Postpartum Women (PPW) Center of Excellence (CoE).  This CoE will develop and strengthen the behavioral healthcare workforce that provides addiction treatment and recovery support services to PPW, their children, and their families.  View more information on the ATTC program.

The purpose of the ATTC program is to develop and strengthen the workforce that provides addictions treatment and recovery support services to those in need.  In partnership with Single State Authorities (SSAs), treatment provider associations, addictions counselors, multidisciplinary behavioral health professionals, faith and recovery community leaders, family members of those in recovery, and other stakeholders, the ATTCs assess the training and development needs of the substance use disorder workforce, and develop and conduct training and technology transfer activities to meet identified needs.  Particular emphasis is on increasing knowledge and improving skills in using evidence-based and promising treatment/recovery practices in recovery-oriented systems of care.

SAMHSA currently funds 10 regional ATTCs that provide crucial support for addressing behavioral health issues at the regional and local levels.  In addition, four ATTCs receive funding to address a national focus area and one ATTC serves as the national coordinating office.  These 15 ATTCs provide comprehensive support with respect to developing and enhancing the workforce.

In order to develop and disseminate a PPW curriculum, a current ATTC grantee will develop a Center of Excellence (CoE) to develop and strengthen the behavioral healthcare workforce that provides addiction treatment and recovery support services to PPW, their children, and their families.  The CoE will develop a training curriculum/toolkit for implementing the current PPW family-centered approach.  Within the first year, the primary function of the ATTC-CoE is to develop a PPW family-centered curriculum by gathering, organizing, and evaluating current resources and research.  The focus in year 2 will be on providing training (both face-to- face and on-line) and on disseminating the PPW curriculum/toolkit to agencies, other technical assistance providers, educational institutions, and individual practitioners implementing and adopting it.

Eligibility

Eligibility for this funding opportunity is limited to SAMHSA FY 2012 ATTC grantees.  SAMHSA believes that the most effective way to accomplish the goals of this two-year supplemental program is to limit eligibility to the identified existing SAMHSA ATTC grantees because they have the infrastructure, partnerships, and necessary knowledge and skills already in place to rapidly implement the Center of Excellence without a lengthy start-up period or lengthy breaks in service.
