For a treatment program approach to be classified as evidence-based, it must include strong theoretical foundations. It must also provide sound empirical evidence of effectiveness.
For this Assignment, you evaluate evidence-based programs and non-evidence-based programs. In addition, you analyze their strengths and limitations in supporting recovery. Use the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website or other reputable sources.
