What is Evidence Based Treatment?
Evidence Based Treatment is a relatively new field that has spread to nursing, psychology, and most recently to the successful treatment of alcohol and drug related addictions. At its most basic level, evidence based treatments are founded on research studies. Evidence based decisions are made after reviewing the data gathered from repeatedly testing various treatment options. The data removes the “guesswork” about what works by utilizing methods that have been proven to work over time with a variety of subjects and situations. Intuition may work in some situations but science and evidence are based on fact.
