Evidence-based treatment, or EBT, is an approach that uses scientifically-based information to guide various forms of therapy. Recovery facilities and programs that offer evidence-based treatments are, by definition, backed by legitimately published research findings. EBT uses accurate, verifiable information with real-world, practical applications to provide effective solutions for addiction, mental illness, and more.
A variety of EBT modalities appear throughout rehabilitation facilities and sober communities across the globe, including 12-Step programs, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and the development of specific coping skills like interactive journaling.

Receiving treatments based on concrete evidence can help to peel away the anecdotal evidence and social expectations that surround common therapies and present the facts as researchers report them.
