About:
The SEOW has been providing epidemiological services to and working with the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Division (ADAD) which is a part of Hawaiʻi Department of Health, from 2006 to present. The SEOW has evolved to target underage drinking and substance use due to the focus of the federal grant from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA): Strategic Prevention Framework Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS). The SEOW is a partnership between ADAD, University of Hawaiʻi Office of Public Health Studies, and interested community stakeholders.
 
The SEOW hosts a quarterly meeting where individuals/organizations have the opportunity to share their substance use-related data.
