Access to Confidential Data available through the Data Portal

The Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is announcing a call for applications for access to Drug Abuse Warning Network (DAWN) and National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) confidential data for research purposes. CBHSQ encourages applications from all qualified research organizations to propose research projects using these data. The deadline for application is February 1, 2013.

Currently, 2004 to 2011 NSDUH and 2004 to 2010 DAWN data are available for access through CBHSQ's new Data Portal system.

The Data Portal is a secure virtual computing environment facilitated through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Data Archive (SAMHDA). It is designed to provide authorized researchers access to confidential data for approved research projects. The goal of the Data Portal is to maximize the use of data collected by CBHSQ for important research and policy analyses, while conforming to Federal law and protecting identifiable data from disclosure.
