Evidence-Based Practices are approaches which have been empirically researched and proven to have measurable positive outcomes. The term "evidence-based practices" refers to interventions that have been rigorously tested, have yielded consistent, replicable results, and have proven safe, beneficial, and effective. Identifying "what works" and applying the evidence-based knowledge to program development is critically important to assure the use of practices in the delivery of behavioral health services. Too few people with behavioral health disorders who are justice involved receive comprehensive and appropriate services.
