Center of Excellence in Evidence-Based Intervention

There are many providers and organizations in South Carolina that aim to address the challenges related to behavioral health problems and substance abuse in children and adolescents. When families are facing these problems, the Palmetto Coordinated System of Care (PCSC) believes the most successful path to healthy and happy homes rests on getting help with treatments that have been proven effective (evidence-based interventions). The Center of Excellence helps and supports providers to deliver these kinds of high quality treatments that research has shown to be effective.   

The Center is newly established and supports the PCSC. Current activities include examining evidence-based intervention models. Future activities include facilitation of training and establishing systems for implementation support. The PCSC will also provide training and technical assistance for data collection efforts. These activities are designed to ensure delivery of high quality services to families in need.

The mission of the Center of Excellence in Evidence-Based Intervention is to support agencies and organizations in the selection and implementation of evidence-based interventions to promote youth and family well-being and to address challenges related to behavioral health problems and substance use. 

Vision:

  • Make evidence-based support and intervention available when and where youth and families need them.
  • Promote excellence and accountability in service provision.
  • Encourage a ready workforce through education and support efforts.
