Why join NAATP? Benefits of Membership for Drug and Alcohol Treatment Centers
The National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers (NAATP) is a nonprofit professional membership organization with over 945 members that supports addiction treatment providers through leadership, best practices, resources, systemic law, and policy advocacy.
NAATP’s service as a convening body brings the industry together to promote collegiality and the dissemination of best practices. They are premised on the idea that professions develop and succeed when their members communicate, collaborate, develop standards, and advocate together through a professional society.
They offer a reputable and comprehensive source of addiction service providers and supporters. All NAATP members in good standing appear in their directory and search criteria are based on facility demographics. These listings help clients understand addiction and navigate different treatment types. They also provide information to help clients distinguish trustworthy treatment services and learn how to evaluate standards of care.
