Primary Audience of the Network Addictions Workforce: Awardees should target the majority of their efforts and resources toward enhancing the knowledge and skills of the addictions workforce (including peer service providers) and promoting the adoption of evidence- based/promising practices in specialty substance use disorders treatment settings and primary healthcare settings. This will involve providing training and TA for front-line addictions counselors, and/or clinical supervisors of front-line addictions counselors, and/or other key treatment organization personnel, as well as students (e.g., Associate, Baccalaureate, and Masters level) preparing for roles in the substance use disorders treatment field in their regions.

Secondary Audience of the Network SAMHSA also recognizes that professionals working in other settings (e.g., criminal justice, child welfare, primary health care), as well as nonprofessionals (e.g., faith community members, peer recovery community leaders), also play an important role in the recovery process. Awardees may devote a maximum of 40% of their grant award to training non-specialty professionals and nonprofessional providers of recovery support services.
