SAMHSA announces the launch of the Evidence-Based Practices Resource Center, which aims to provide communities, clinicians, policymakers, and others in the field with the information and tools they need to incorporate evidence-based practices into their communities or clinical settings. The Resource Center contains a collection of science-based resources for a broad range of audiences, including Treatment Improvement Protocols, toolkits, resource guides, and clinical practice guidelines. Recognizing the enormity of the opioid epidemic, the Resource Center includes an opioid-specific resources section.
The Resource Center is part of SAMHSA’s new comprehensive approach to identifying and disseminating clinically sound and scientifically based policies, practices, and programs. The Resource Center website was designed with an easy-to-use, point-and-click system to enable users to quickly identify the most relevant resources for their needs. Users can search by topic area, resource type, target population, and target audience.
