New England Evidence-based Program Training Series for RI: Session 1: What are EBPs and why are they important?

Session 1: What are EBPs and why are they important?

Description: The first session will set the stage for the training series by defining evidence-based programs (EBPs) and describing why they are important for meeting our substance misuse prevention goals. You will begin by reflecting on the goals of your substance misuse prevention efforts and determining how EBPs can help you achieve those goals. We will also review what research shows are the core elements of effective prevention programs and what research shows is not effective. Finally, we will introduce several program registries that you can use to identify and compare specific EBPs that meet your community’s needs. 


  1. To improve knowledge of different types of evidence. 
  2. To improve understanding of what research shows does and does not work in substance misuse prevention programs.  
  3. To learn what constitutes an evidence-based substance misuse prevention program and how to identify evidence-based programs using publicly available program registries.
