Many interventions get labeled “evidence-based practices” without much effort by clinicians to understand the quality of the science that supports the intervention. Some interventions have rigorous evidence to support their use in practice. However, there are other interventions that find their way into practice due to marketing or word-of-mouth alone. This session will identify and evaluate many interventions that are commonly used in addiction treatment programs. We will establish whether these interventions are based in science or marketing and discuss their impact on client outcomes. Class size is limited to 42.
