Without warning, the government just ended a registry of mental illness and drug abuse programs

NREPP data base wiped out

In a sudden move that took many industry stakeholders by surprise, the Trump administration last month ended the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP), a database of more than 400 resources and programs geared toward the prevention and treatment of substance abuse and mental illnesses.

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), which funded NREPP, confirmed to ThinkProgress in a statement that the registry’s current contract was discontinued.

NREPP began in 1997 and had since been remodeled to include treatment interventions. Some of the recent programs added to the registry — which is still online, but hasn’t been updated since September — included a recovery and support group program for opioid addiction, a depression prevention intervention program, a substance abuse prevention program aimed at middle school students, and a therapy program for Puerto Rican teenagers suffering from depression.
