SEOW Publications

The SEOW aims to provide timely, meaningful, and actionable data. Each of the following publications is our attempt to do so in a way that provides value to our partners. The SEOW regularly publishes topical data briefs, newsletters, and epidemiological profiles. Occasionally, the SEOW will publish unique pieces like our data equity checklist and data literacy manual.



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. The 2021 profiles include a section on Colorado demographics, alcohol, marijuana, tobacco, and opioids.


These publications focus on evidence-based policies to reduce excessive drinking. These documents provide a high level overview of Colorado’s current alcohol polices and information on strategies for reducing excessive alcohol use.


Data briefs provide a high level overview of salient and timely substance use topics. Some recent topics include Fentanyl and Stimulants.



The SEOW sends newsletters periodically to share SEOW publications, partner publications, and information on upcoming events and professional development opportunities.
