Evidence-based prevention programs are proven by research to work. The terms “science-based,” or “research-based” are sometimes used interchangeably.
Evidence-based programs are grounded in sound theory with well-designed evaluation measures to demonstrate their effectiveness. Published, scientific studies generate evidence of the positive results of the intervention. The more often a study is replicated, the stronger the evidence.
The programs are packaged for easy translation to the community setting. When we implement the programs as designed, we can expect positive results.
