Products and Publications

Epidemiological Profiles

The Profiles are tools for individuals and organizations working in the areas of substance abuse prevention, public health, mental health, and others in support of the SAMHSA – SPF-PFS grant. The purpose of these profiles is to provide a state-level overview that summarizes data from new and established surveillance sources for use in prevention/intervention planning, monitoring, and evaluation and provides recommendations to ensure comparable data to improve data collection for future surveillance. This will allow agencies and organizations involved in prevention activities to monitor and evaluate interventions associated with alcohol, marijuana, opioids, and related consequences including but not limited to dependency and treatment.

Topical Data Briefs

Data briefs provide a high level overviews of salient and timely substance use topics.
