Help when 1 minor is doubled and passed out

I’m based in UK and mainly Benji Acol and weak NT and we have a rescue mechanism to hopefully minimise when our 1NT opening bid is doubled. Seems to work and avoid large penalty scores.

With other partners I play 5 Card major, strong NT, better minor. Recently we have had a few poor scores when we open the minor and it goes 1 minor (pass) pass (double) all pass. Rather large minus score.

Just wondering if there is there any rescue mechanism/wriggle as over 1NT doubled or does one just take the punishment.

Oh and while asking here is a beginner question what does ATB stand for?

Thanks

Alistair
