The New Mexico Statewide Epidemiology and Outcomes Workgroup (SEOW) reviews, summarizes and disseminates data and best-practice information about the consequences of substance abuse and misuse, the results of effective prevention, treatment and recovery that are relevant to substance abuse and related work occurring in communities throughout New Mexico.

The SEOW is directed by the Office of Substance Abuse Prevention (OSAP) and supported by funding from the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention. The SEOW membership includes prevention and treatment stakeholders from communities, epidemiologists specializing in substance abuse from the Department of Health’s Epidemiology and Response Division and representatives from state level agencies including the Behavioral Health Services Department (BHSD), the Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD), and the Department of Finance and Administration (DFA) DWI Program.

The work of the SEOW is intended to help maximize the impact of substance abuse programming for New Mexicans by helping communities supported by a range of state agencies and federal grants utilize data more effectively.

Coop Consulting, Inc. coordinates the SEOW and publication of research produced and vetted by the SEOW.
