ATTUD is an organization of providers dedicated to the promotion of and increased access to evidence-based tobacco treatment for the tobacco user.






National Certificate in Tobacco Treatment Practice. ATTUD endorses this new national certificate, which was created in collaboration with NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, and the Council for Tobacco Treatment Training Programs (CTTTP). For more information, visit the NAADAC website. Many of your questions may be answered by the details included on the application form.


The National Certificate in Tobacco Treatment Practice (NCTTP) was created to:

  • standardize and unify tobacco-related competencies, knowledge, and skills on a national level
  • provide national, unified recognition of professionals who obtain this prestigious certificate


The NCTTP demonstrates to employers, third-party payers, and clients that Tobacco Treatment Specialists possess advanced education and tobacco treatment practice experience in evidence-based tobacco-related competencies, skills, and practice. This first “test exempt” option provides a document that will be nationally unified and recognized for applicants who can meet all requirements by April 15, 2018.
