The Office of Data Management, Research and Planning closely monitors substance use disorder (SUD) data and trends in order to better anticipate and meet the needs of New Yorkers living with addiction. OASAS believes an evidence-based and data-driven approach is critical to addressing substance use disorders. We're making these data available to our partners, providers, and localities to inform our collective efforts to understand and address addiction in New York State.
