SAC NOFA: Evidence-Based Practice
Identify barriers (fiscal, regulatory, and policy) that impede the adoption and provision of accessible evidence-based treatment across the full continuum of care recommended by the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM).
Devise and implement strategies, in concert with all other State-agencies that may fund and/or regulate these services, to improve the access to treatment, increase capacity and quality, and expand the available continuum in communities and throughout the State implementing treatment interventions with a scientific evidence base for the population to be served.
Identify and provide linkages across the universe of discretionary federal and foundation-funded adolescent substance abuse treatment grant programs for the purpose of supporting and disseminating learning across the State-wide treatment system and to provide assistance to ensure sustainability and adoption of best/evidence-based practices identified in these programs.
