Search Proven Interventions with Redesigned SAMSHA Database

3/14/2007:   A new searchable database with reliable, up-to-date information on interventions for the prevention and treatment of mental health and substance use disorders is now available online.

Developed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSHA), the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) allows users to perform custom searches to identify specific interventions based on desired outcomes, target populations, and service settings. NREPP was originally created in the 1990s, but was redesigned based on input from the scientific community, service providers, and the public.

Custom features of the new NREPP include
  • custom searches based on desired outcomes, target populations, and service settings;
  • details on each intervention, including a descriptive summary, types of outcomes achieved, costs of implementation, and contact information for the intervention developer; and
  • two independent expert ratings for each intervention.
