Federal health officials recently froze a program aimed to educate the public and provide information about evidence-based mental health and substance abuse treatment program. Established in 1997, the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices was overseen by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, under the US Department of Health and Human Services. In order to be listed on the registry, programs had to undergo a review process by the administration to determine the regimen's effectiveness. Programs could be self-nominated for review or identified by the administration for review. The program was cancelled because it wasn't serving its intended purpose a spokesman said. The program was simply identifying too few or no results when people seeking information searched for it and was deemed ineffective.
