Evidence-based Practices Workgroup

The Evidence-based Practices (EBP) Workgroup was formed to gain an understanding of the role of EBP in Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) prevention within GPAC agencies. Two phases of assessments were conducted. The first phase was conducted to identify use of "evidence-based" standards or criteria in policy, programs or services provided or funded by the GPAC member agencies. The second phase was a more in-depth survey about how evidence-based practices are used across systems.
