Programs - Programs which have been reviewed
by experts in the field according to predetermined
standards of empirical research. Science-based
programs are theory-based, have sound research
methodology, and can prove that effects are
clearly linked to the program itself and not
to extraneous events. Results from science-based
programs may be positive, neutral, or negative.

for Substance Abuse Prevention - Featuring
highly successful Model Programs that
can be replicated at the community level,
adopted in the entirety, or used to guide
improvements or expanded services in an existing
substance abuse prevention program.

but produce consistently positive patterns
of results. Only programs positively affecting
the majority of intended recipients or targets
are considered effective.
Department of Education and the Expert
Panel on Safe, Disciplined and Drug-Free Schools
have identified nine exemplary and thirty-three
promising programs. The Department will disseminate
information about the programs and encourage
their use in new sites. The Expert Panel initiative
is a way of enhancing programs aimed at developing
the health and well being of our nation's
young people by making schools and communities
aware of programs that have proven their effectiveness
when judged against rigorous criteria.
for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV)
Here you will find "Blueprints"
identifying ten highly rated model programs
which have met rigorous selection criteria
and are recognized by OJJDP -Office of Juvenile
Justice Delinquency Prevention.. Other promising
programs can also be found that have met a
portion of the criteria, but appear to have
the potential to become model programs with
further documentation and research.
