National Workforce Report 2017 Released

The Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC Network) has issued its 2017 National Workforce Report. This new report was conducted as a follow-up to the previous ATTC Network workforce study report, Vital Signs: Taking the Pulse of the Addiction Treatment Workforce. 

The new report delves further into the high turnover rates reported in the 2012, which add to provider training and recruitment costs and potentially threaten the quality of care received by clients entering SUD treatment, and examines recruitment and retention methods.
