The Center for Evidence-Based Practices (CEBP) at Case Western Reserve University is a technical-assistance organization that promotes knowledge development and the implementation of evidence-based practices (EBPs) for the treatment and recovery of people diagnosed with mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders. The CEBP also implements and studies emerging best practices and other strategies and approaches in an effort to identify innovations that consistently generate improved outcomes and, thus, may become an EBP.
EBPs are service models that research has demonstrated to generate improved consumer outcomes. Organizations which maintain fidelity to the design of each EBP appear to achieve and sustain the best outcomes. Improved consumer outcomes may have a positive impact upon program and systems outcomes.
