Service to Science

New Hampshire Service to Science brings substance use prevention programs* that have been developed in the state through the process of becoming designated as Evidence-Based.

The term “Service to Science” is used by the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to identify interventions developed by local and community organizations that have yet to establish their efficacy through research and/or rigorous evaluation. New Hampshire’s process is aligned with SAMHSA’s nomination process which was developed to:

  • determine the strength of theoretical frameworks used in the development of the intervention
  • determine and evaluate intermediate outcomes relevant to the intervention’s intended purpose
  • address the risk and protective factors and cultural context influencing alcohol and other drug behaviors in New Hampshire
