We serve our communities by providing data on the state’s Three Prevention Priorities of alcohol, marijuana, prescription drug use, and tobacco and other drugs. In addition, we provide data to schools, colleges, universities, coalitions, councils, events, and other stakeholders within our communities. This is done through Information Dissemination which provides awareness and knowledge of substance abuse issues and trends through the data collected by the central data repository.
