Evidence Based Practices (EBP)

Humboldt County Health and Human Services is committed to Evidence Based Practices (EBP) in targeted prevention, early intervention and treatment strategies. This long-term strategy will be assessed for outcome and fiscal efficiencies and be expanded if outcomes support this approach. EBPs are viewed as a promising foundation for successful community and family interventions.
