The National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP)

NREPP is a searchable online registry of mental health and substance abuse interventions that have been reviewed and rated by independent reviewers. The purpose of this registry is to assist the public in identifying approaches to preventing and treating mental and/or substance use disorders that have been scientifically tested and that can be readily disseminated to the field. NREPP is one way that SAMHSA is working to improve access to information on tested interventions and thereby reduce the lag time between the creation of scientific knowledge and its practical application in the field.

NREPP can be a first step to promoting informed decision-making.  The information in NREPP intervention summaries is provided to help you begin to determine whether a particular intervention may meet your needs. 

Direct conversations with intervention developers and others listed as contacts are advised before making any decisions regarding selection or implementation of an intervention. To access NREPP please visit:
Below are the links of two Native American interventions, among others, found in NREPP for your review:

Again, you are encouraged to search through the registry to determine whether a particular intervention may meet your needs.
