The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) announces a Call for Nominations to its Service to Science Initiative. Service to Science is a national initiative dedicated to enhancing the evaluation capacity of innovative programs and practices that aim to prevent substance abuse and related mental and behavioral health problems or the underlying factors associated with increased risk. Operated by SAMHSA’s Center for the Application of Prevention Technologies (CAPT), Service to Science assists local program developers, implementers, and evaluators in applying more rigorous evaluation methodologies to their work. Ultimately, the initiative supports state prevention efforts by increasing the number of local programs that meet evidence-based standards. In order to participate in Service to Science programs must be nominated by their State Alcohol and Drug Agency (Single State Agency, or SSA) or National Prevention Network (NPN) representative. We encourage interested programs to contact their SSA or NPN to seek nominations for participation. For information on reaching your SSA or NPN, contact the CAPT Service to Science Lead in your service area. Deadline for nominations is August 1, 2012.
