Evidence Based Practices

What is an Evidence-Based Practice?

The term “evidence-based practices” refers to specific types of behavioral health therapy that have been shown in research settings to be more effective in reducing specific mental illnesses and substance use disorders over traditional approaches to therapy.

Weber Human Services has advanced the use of these research-based treatments throughout the agency, ensuring that clients have access to the most effective treatments available. 

Our efforts to deliver evidence-based treatments have resulted in a significant increase in the number of people improving and recovering from their presenting behavioral health symptoms.  The graph shown here, demonstrates the outcome improvements for more than 31,000 clients served in Utah during a 4-year period.  Clients at WHS are 23% more likely to recover from their mental illness over the state-wide average.
