The Mission of National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers: Providing membership opportunities that give the public access to the many addiction treatment facilities located throughout the United States while advocating for fair practices in recognizing the services of its members.
Since its founding in 1978, The National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers has stood at the forefront of the addiction treatment field, speaking with a clear and unified voice on behalf of its 300 member organizations. Those organizations consist of over 600 treatment facilities which set the standard for quality, caring therapeutic services for men and women, young and old, suffering from addictive diseases.
NAATP has a long history of advocating for fair and equal legal recognition of the services its member organizations provide, with the same fair and equal reimbursement benefits for the patients served by its members. The membership of NAATP covers a wide range of providers, non-profit and for profit; hospital based, residential, outpatient and extended care facilities; some that follow the time-tested 12 Step model and others that have modified that model.
But one clear, unifying objective ties all the membership together—a strong commitment to giving addicted persons and those important to them a new chance at a sober, clean, productive life. NAATP is their voice, but our membership puts that voice into action.
