Description
 
This pub. offers guidance on how to integrate evidence-based practices (EBPs) for substance abuse treatment into clinical practice. Informed by the realities of many substance abuse treatment providers, it suggests efficient solutions for implementing change based on proven methods. Through a practical step-by-step narrative, it explains how to assess an organizationís capacity to identify priorities, implement changes, evaluate progress, and sustain effective programs over the long run. This pub. will be of use for any treatment program or agency implementing change or EBPs. The audience is administrators attempting to integrate EBPs into their programs. Change is a reality for all substance abuse treatment agencies and organizations. Rates of substance abuse rise and fall, substances of abuse emerge or are rediscovered, science uncovers the mechanisms of addictions, and researchers identify effectiveinterventions. Over the past two decades,EBPs for substance abuse treatment have shifted dramatically from 28-day, 12-Step-based programs to individualized treatmentthat addresses a clientís multiple needs. Providers now implement increasingly specialized interventions, including pharmacotherapy, with fewer resources. Figures.
