SAMHSA Changes National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs

SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) logoSAMHSA recently released a report that details changes to the Agency's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP). The report was published in the March 14 Federal Register, and it is also available on the SAMHSA Web site.

Historically, NREPP has served as a nationally recognized tool to identify and promote interventions that work to prevent substance abuse. The new changes, which follow an extensive period of public comments, will broaden NREPP to include the latest information on the scientific basis for specific programs and interventions to prevent and/or treat mental health and substance use disorders.

The new protocols and procedures are designed to help reduce the significant lag-time between new scientific knowledge and its application by community-based prevention and treatment programs and providers. The changes provide transparency, accuracy, and timeliness of both the NREPP process and the end product—the registry itself.

By Fall 2006, SAMHSA anticipates the launch of a new NREPP Web site. For more information, including a copy of the NREPP report, visit SAMHSA's Web siteEnd of Article
