What is the Data Portal?
The Data Portal provides secure remote access to confidential data from the Center for Behavioral Health Statistics and Quality (CBHSQ), Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
CBHSQ confidential data can only be accessed remotely through the Data Portal using special software. This virtual computing environment has been designed to provide authorized researchers access to confidential data for approved research projects. The Data Portal can only be accessed from approved computer location(s) and IP address(es) at the researcher's organization. Users are required to maintain the confidentiality of the data in the Data Portal. Researchers cannot transfer data into or out of the Data Portal.
The goal of the Data Portal is to maximize the use of CBHSQ data for important research and policy analyses, while conforming to Federal law and protecting identifiable data from disclosure.
