The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has launched an Evidence-Based Practices Resource Center, which offers treatment improvement protocols, clinical practice guidelines and other tools related to opioids and other substance use prevention, treatment and recovery, and serious mental illness and mental health. “SAMHSA is committed to improving prevention, treatment and recovery support services for mental and substance use disorders,” said Elinore McCance-Katz, assistant secretary for mental health and substance use. “Science and the evidence base continue to expand and change. Our vision for the Resource Center is to be dynamic and to respond to changing science and evidence, in order to deliver the most relevant and proven resources to Americans.”
