The National Consortium of Torture Treatment Programs(link is external) (NCTTP) is a non-profit, U.S. based network of programs which exists to advance the knowledge, technical capacities and resources devoted to the care of torture survivors and to act collectively to prevent torture worldwide. The primary purpose of the NCTTP is to foster the development, in quality as well as quantity, of specialized programs devoted to caring for survivors of torture. Member organizations share knowledge and expertise through regular communication and cooperation, building stronger individual organizations as well as a stronger network of care.

Membership in the NCTTP is open to nonprofit organizations actively providing medical or mental health services to torture survivors. Members of the National Consortium of Torture Treatment Programs are located across the United States and reflect the newness of the torture treatment movement. Members range from very recently started programs to ones more than 30 years old.  Torture treatment programs that are funded by ORR are especially encouraged to contact the NCTTP to inquire about membership.

The NCB Project provides logistical support for the annual meeting of the National Consortium of Torture Treatment Programs (NCTTP).
