The profiles are tools for individuals and organizations working in substance use-related areas like behavioral health, public health, public safety, and public policy. The profiles provide an overview of various substances, substance use behaviors, and consequences related to substance use. The Colorado SEOW will publish substance use profiles every other year.
These profiles resulted from the collaborative efforts by the Colorado State Epidemiological Outcome Workgroup members and their respective agencies, in addition to The Evaluation Center (TEC) at the University of Colorado Denver School of Education and Human Development. TEC has a contract with the State of Colorado Department of Human Services, Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) to provide services to the Colorado State Epidemiological Outcomes Workgroup.
