Addressing Tobacco Through Organizational Change (ATTOC), University of Massachusetts Medical School, Department of Psychiatry.
The Addressing Tobacco Through Organizational Change (ATTOC) approach is guided by seven core strategies and a 10-step process designed to help an agency systematically improve their tobacco addiction treatment for patients/clients and change their culture to better address tobacco. The ATTOC approach is intended to be flexible to the unique needs, resources, and goals of any organization. Each organization begins at their own starting point based on what they have already accomplished and the resources available for this initiative. ATTOC has been an effective approach in helping many addictions in mental health, hospital and other clinical settings.
