Conscious Discipline is now recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration’s (SAMHSA’s) National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), which promotes the adoption of scientifically established behavioral health interventions.

NREPP is the gold standard for identifying research-based interventions. Certified NREPP reviewers independently assessed and rated Conscious Discipline’s effects on individual outcomes. NREPP subsequently endorsed Conscious Discipline as effective for improving social functioning and competence. The review of the program yielded strong evidence of a favorable effect. NREPP also rated Conscious Discipline as promising for improving educational achievement and attainment.

SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP) is a searchable database of more than 330 interventions for the prevention and treatment of mental and substance disorders.

The database was established to help the public learn more about available evidence-based programs and practices in their communities and determine which of these may best meet their needs. NREPP is one way that SAMHSA works to improved access to information on evaluated interventions and reduce the lag time between the creation of scientific knowledge and its practical application in the field. NREPP is a voluntary system in which program developers elect to participant.
