New Web Page Helps Users Identify Evidence-Based Programs

November 20, 2007

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has developed a new Web page to assist the public in identifying evidence-based programs and practices that can prevent and/or treat mental and substance use disorders.  Debuting online today, A Guide to Evidence-Based Practices on the Web at www.samhsa.gov/ebpWebguide features 37 Web sites that contain information about specific evidence-based interventions or provide comprehensive reviews of research findings.

The Web Guide – a component of SAMHSA’s Science and Service Initiative - can be used by stakeholders throughout the behavioral health field to promote awareness of current intervention research and to increase the availability and implementation of evidence-based practices.

Users can browse the listings in the Web Guide by content area, age group, or treatment setting.  Each listing includes the name of the organization sponsoring the Web site, a hyperlink to the actual Web site, a statement of the site’s purpose and intended audience(s), and key features, such as sources of evidence and review processes and information on resources needed to implement the evidence-based practices properly.

For more information, visit A Guide to Evidence-Based Practices (EBP) on the Web at www.samhsa.gov/ebpWebguide .
