Utah Addiction Center

About Us

The Utah Addiction Center is dedicated to the prevention, early intervention and treatment of chemical addiction and improvement of health-care related education and patient care through interdisciplinary research, student education, and health care clinical training. Staff divide their time between developing program/policy at the local, state, and nation levels; teaching and training within Utah and throughout the U.S.; and conducting applied and clinical substance use disorder research.

The Utah Addiction Center recently received funding from Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to administer the Central Rockies Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC). The Central Rockies ATTC improves the quality of addictions treatment and recovery services by providing state of the art training, technical assistance and academic programming activities to strengthen the addiction treatment workforce and upgrade practice standards in Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming.
