Active Parenting programs listed on SAMHSA’s Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP)

We are proud to announce that three of our most popular programs have been listed on the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP). This registry is part of a national government organization SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration), and inclusion in the registry is a well-respected benchmark for programs and practices that effectively reduce use and abuse of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs. We are especially pleased to share this news with the many educators and organizations who are required to use NREPP-listed programs, and who have been waiting patiently for Active Parenting to earn a place on the list. Your wait is over!

The programs listed on NREPP are:

  • Active Parenting 4th Edition
  • Active Parenting of Teens (included with Families in Action)
