    Maine SEOW Dashboard

    The SEOW Dashboard is a web-based interactive system that monitors trends on substance use, mental health, and gambling in Maine. It is our hope that the SEOW Dashboard will help communities build their capacity to address their needs and prevention priorities through data-driven decision-making and evaluation.

    SEOW has the following primary objectives:

    To identify substance abuse patterns or populations

    To establish substance abuse trends

    To detect emerging substances

    To provide information for policy development and program planning
