Evidence-based Interventions Paper

The NNADAP Renewal Process is founded on the belief that a full range of evidence, culturally-based and mainstream, is required to best provide comprehensive and effective solutions for NNADAP. Each of the NNADAP Research Papers will focus on the role of culture within addiction services to varying degrees. However, renewal within NNADAP will also require an overview of the available evidence, both mainstream and Aboriginal.

In 2005, to support renewal efforts in the years to come, Health Canada commissioned a report entitled Interventions Supported by Scientific Evidence for Substance Abuse Treatment, Harm Reduction and Prevention (PDF) (Ogborne, Pagia-Boak, and Graves). The report provides a synthesis of the evidence of interventions to prevent, treat or to reduce harms associated with substance abuse.
