Attitudes Towards Evidence-Based Practice in Substance Use Treatment Programs Serving American Indian Native Communities
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this paper was to compare attitudes towards evidence-based practice (EBP) of substance use disorder treatment (SUDT) center employees’ serving American Indian and Alaskan Native (AIAN) populations to those serving non-AIAN populations. Survey data on the openness and divergence subscales of the Evidence-Based Practice Attitude Scale (EBPAS) were collected and analyzed. Independent samples T tests were performed to compare the two samples. For all comparisons, except the divergence subscale between counselors, the SUDT employees serving AIANs had significantly lower mean openness scores and higher mean divergence scores than those serving non-AIANs. This study suggests that employees of SUDT centers serving AIAN population hold less positive attitudes towards the adoption and use of EBP than non-AIAN.
