The Evidence-Based Practices (EBP) Web Guide features research findings and details about EBPs used to prevent and treat mental and substance use disorders. EBPs integrate clinical expertise; expert opinion; external scientific evidence; and client, patient, and caregiver perspectives so that providers can offer high-quality services that reflect the interests, values, needs, and choices of the individuals served.Stakeholders throughout the behavioral health field can use the EBP Web Guide to promote awareness of current intervention research and to increase the implementation and availability of EBPs.Because of the incredible amount of information related to EBPs currently available online, a search and selection process was implemented to find the most appropriate sites.SAMHSA and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) do not necessarily endorse the programs and practices described on the featured websites, or promote the use of related materials. The views, policies, and opinions expressed on the featured websites are those of the organizations maintaining the website and/or the website authors and do not necessarily reflect those of SAMHSA or HHS.
