Once you have a clear idea of your program needs and your organizational resources, you may search registries of programs to select a program that matches your needs. It is important to read and understand the criteria used to rate or classify programs as these will differ by source. Registries and other resources may also be specific to certain topics or service areas such as education, mental health, juvenile justice, etc.
The Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) provides a checklist of questions (CSAP, 2009) you may ask to see how well your potential selection might fit your needs:
