New England Leadership Development Program - Starts April 22, 2020!

April 1st is the deadline to apply for this year's New England Leadership Development Program

The New England Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) is pleased to announce the 4th cohort of the Leadership Development Program (LDP) for addictions professionals from across the continuum of care. The LDP has been designed by Peter Smith, MBA, an expert in leadership development, with input from a committee of addictions professionals. This program will focus on key leadership skills using a range of learning methods designed to increase your effectiveness immediately. 

One of the elements of this program includes the use of an intact learning community that includes participants from all aspects of care: prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery. The goal is to create a learning community that is as diverse as possible to represent the profession and those served.


  • Address the on-going need for effective individual leadership skill development and increasing the addiction profession’s leadership capacity.
  • Provide a learning experience that will ‘accelerate’ leadership development to complement work experience.

Developing effective leaders is of particular importance as the profession faces the overdose crisis, a changing behavioral healthcare landscape, and the impending retirement of many "baby boom" generation leaders.
