Substance Abuse Epidemiology Work Group (Arizona)
The Epi Work Group is responsible for releasing a biennial comprehensive, informative, and functional profile of substance abuse in the state for use by coalitions, agencies, and individuals in relevant fields. In order to publish the first Arizona Substance Abuse Epidemiology Profile in 2005, the Epi Work Group identified indicators of substance use consequence and consumption patterns and thoroughly analyzed available indicator data.

Arizona Youth Survey
Arizona Revised Statute §41-2416 requires the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission to conduct a statewide survey that is designed to measure the prevalence and frequency of substance abuse by youth, as well as their attitudes toward substance abuse. To comply with Arizona Revised Statute §41-2416 the Arizona Criminal Justice Commission’s Statistical Analysis Center conducts a biennial Arizona Youth Survey. This survey is administered to a statewide sample of 8th, 10th, and 12th grade students attending public and charter middle and high schools throughout Arizona. The Arizona Criminal Justice Commission has been conducting a youth survey for 19 years on a biennial basis; however, notable improvements in the survey model, sampling methods and the increasing levels of participation distinguish the Arizona Youth Surveys administered in 2002 to the present from prior surveys.Click Here

Substance Abuse Epidemiology Work Group
Arizona Substance Abuse Epidemiology Profile
The mission of the Substance Abuse Epidemiology Work Group is to provide communities, policymakers and local, state and tribal officials with data on the use of alcohol and illicit, over-the-counter, and prescription drugs to inform their substance abuse prevention and intervention strategies.
In line with its mission, the Substance Abuse Epidemiology Work Group has four main goals:
- Compile and synthesize information and data on substance abuse and its associated consequences and correlates, including mental illness and emerging trends, through a collaborative and cooperative data-sharing process.
- Assess substance abuse treatment service capacity in Arizona and detail gaps in service availability.
- Serve as a resource to the Arizona Substance Abuse Partnership and member agencies to support data-driven decision-making that makes the best use of the resources available to address substance abuse and related issues in Arizona.
- Identify data gaps and address them in order to provide Arizona with a comprehensive picture of substance abuse in the state.
