Funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), the NW PTTC is one of 10 regional Prevention Technology Transfer Centers nationwide. The NW PTTC
is lead by the Social Development Research Group
(SDRG) at the University of Washington in collaboration with the IMPACT lab at Washington State University and the Center for the Application of Substance Abuse Technologies
(CASAT) at the University of Nevada, Reno. Through collaboration, the NW PTTC aims to serve as the primary training and technical assistance (TTA) resource to Region 10 (Washington, Idaho, Oregon and Alaska) prevention practitioners. Ultimately, our goal is to advance the prevention workforce’s ability to find, select, implement, and evaluate evidence-based and promising substance abuse prevention programs, policies, and practices to achieve a meaningful reduction in substance misuse and its harmful consequences.
