SAMHSA Disaster Technical Assistance Center

When disasters strike, State and Territory mental health/substance abuse agencies and local service providers are suddenly thrust onto the frontline for response and recovery efforts. Often they find themselves confronting new or unknown problems for which no amount of preplanning is possible.

During that critical period when mobilization for response and recovery begins, service providers need a resource as close as an 800-number call. They now have the SAMHSA Disaster Technical Assistance Center (SAMHSA DTAC).

Learn more about SAMHSA DTAC.
