Description: The availability of empirically supported clinical practices and interventions for the treatment of substance use disorders has increased as research moves from tightly controlled studies in the laboratory to community treatment settings. As empirically validated, manual-based approaches grow in number, it becomes more difficult for addiction professionals and policy makers to stay informed about the variety of practices with proven efficacy for use with different client populations and drug problems.

The EBP Substance Abuse web site and database is designed to help treatment providers make informed decisions about which science-based practices are most appropriate in which circumstances for which individuals.
