The Addiction Technology Transfer Center Network (ATTC), recently released “The 2017 National Workforce Report: Strategies for Recruitment, Retention, and Development of the Substance Use Disorder Treatment and Recovery Services Workforce.” This report summarizes the findings of the ATTC’s nationwide, qualitative study of the substance use disorders workforce.
The 2017 National Workforce Report is considered a follow-up report to the previous ATTC Network workforce study report, “Vital Signs: Taking the Pulse of the Addiction Treatment Workforce, A National Report” (Ryan, Murphy, Krom, 2012.)
The goal of the 2017 report is to, “provide a national perspective on the workforce so we can better understand current strategies that states and provider agencies are using to address their workforce needs. It may also help guide the ATTC Network in developing appropriate training and technical assistance to address emerging trends in a changing field.”
