The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is committed to preventing the onset and reducing the progression of mental illness, substance abuse, and substance-related problems among all individuals, including youth. As part of this effort, SAMHSA has expanded and refined the agency's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) based on a systematic analysis and consideration of public comments received in response to a previous Federal Register notice (70 FR 50381, Aug. 26, 2005). This Federal Register notice summarizes SAMHSA's redesign of NREPP as a decision support tool for promoting a greater adoption of evidence-based interventions within typical community-based settings, and provides an opportunity for interested parties to become familiar with the new system.
