The fight against COVID-19 continues throughout the U.S., increasing stress and anguish among vulnerable populations struggling with substance use. Among those vulnerable populations, pregnant women present major concerns as they face an increase in adversity during the wake of the global pandemic.
The Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) Network promotes the adoption and implementation of evidence- based, recovery-oriented, culturally appropriate practices for people who have, or who are at risk of developing, substance use disorders across the globe. Funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Network includes 10 Regional Centers, 2 National Focus Area Centers, and a Network Office serving the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa, Palau, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, and the Mariana Islands. Additionally, the President’s Emergency Plan for Aids Relief supports international HIV ATTCs in Ukraine and Central Asia, South Africa, Southeast Asia, and Vietnam.
