Substance Abuse Epidemiology Profile Report - Acknowledgments

The New Mexico Substance Abuse Epidemiology Profile was prepared by the New Mexico Department of Health (NMDOH) Epidemiology and Response Division (ERD) Injury and Behavioral Epidemiology Bureau (IBEB) Substance Abuse Epidemiology Section (SAES), with data provision and analytic support from the NMDOH IBEB Survey Section; and was made possible by the generous support of the New Mexico Human Services Department (NMHSD) Behavioral Health Services Division (BHSD) Office of Substance Abuse Prevention (OSAP), based on an allocation from the Partnerships for Success 2015 (PFS2015) grant received from the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (SAMHSA-CSAP).

SPF-SIG Statewide Epidemiological & Outcomes Workgroup (SEOW)

The Statewide Epidemiological and Outcomes Workgroup (SEOW) currently functions as a guiding body for all OSAP grant recipient prevention strategies in the state of New Mexico and as a platform for rich discussion, collaboration and epidemiological data and information sharing at the state level and is a core component of the Partnerships for Success 2015 grant. Under the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant from SAMHSA over a decade ago, the SEOW guided the development of the first New Mexico Substance Abuse Epidemiology Profile as part of its mission to create a focus on community-based and data-driven planning and accountability. The on-going focus of the SEOW is the development and informed use of assessment data and indicators for use in community planning, prioritization and evaluation; and, the support of evidence-based strategies, policies and practices in all community prevention activity.
