Welcome to the

National Treatment Network


A component of the National Association of State Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD), the National Treatment Network (NTN) is a group of State Alcohol and Other Drug Agency Treatment Representatives dedicated to promoting effective, socially responsive programs, and applying effective strategies to expand and improve the publicly funded substance use disorder service system throughout the United States of America including all States and territories.

The NTN partners with the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) and other national organizations pursuing activities designed to promote effective and efficient substance use disorder services that are cost-effective, of high quality, and uniquely designed to serve diverse populations.

The NTN also provides a nationwide organized structure to assist CSAT and support the Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC) initiative that supports person-centered and self-directed approaches to care that build on the strengths and resilience of individuals, families, and communities to sustain personal responsibility, health, wellness and recovery from substance use disorders.

Who are the members of NTN?

The NTN members are senior-level, executive leaders comprising the front line staff in the States and territories where all treatment practices get implemented and funded.

The NTN supports, promotes and prepares the leadership of tomorrow in the substance use disorder service field around the country.

Promoting the Implementation and Expansion of  Systems of Care

Through the ongoing discussions of the executive committee and general membership, the NTN has established priorities that have a national scope and impact. Workgroups address each of these issues and collaborate with other recovery oriented systems of care to share and disseminate our collective knowledge in implementing effective services and systems of care.

The NTN priorities are as follows:

  • System and Performance Management – Promote better health for the nation and credibility for the addiction field through strategic analysis and use of population health and service-level data.
  • Evidence Based and Best Practices (EBP) – Promote the adoption and implementation of EBP as a strategy to improve service delivery models for all populations with or at risk of developing substance use disorders who are matched to the practices and to improve outcomes in addiction services.
  • Medication Assisted Therapy – Promote continued use of traditional medication assisted therapies as well as new medications to support addiction treatment and recovery outcomes.
  • Recovery Oriented Systems of Care Infrastructure – Provide access to state-of-the-art policy, financial, services and supports information to states and territories that aligns with the goals of building Recovery Oriented Systems of Care.
  • Successful State Strategies – Promote the nationwide exposure, adoption and implementation of the Network for the Improvement of Addiction Treatment (NIATx) model of rapid cycle change with big impact on existing resources.

As of 2011, the NTN has established committees on the following topics:

  • Adolescent Treatment
  • Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Implementation
  • Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT)- A joint committee with the Opioid Treatment Network (OTN)
  • Recovery Oriented Systems of Care (ROSC)
