Office of Applied Research and Analysis


Effective with the passage of the 2013-2014 Budget Act and associated legislation, the Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs (ADP) no longer exists as of July 1, 2013. All ADP programs and staff, except the Office of Problem Gambling, transferred to the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS). Please visit the DHCS website. Read more...

DHCS is currently working to review and incorporate the data services provided through the Office of Applied Research and Analysis (OARA) as part of the transfer of services previously provided under ADP. During this time, OARA will not be accepting ad hoc requests. Information on requesting confidential data sets for research or public health purposes is available at Accessing Protected DHCS Data for Research and Public Health (DHCS' Data and Research Committee).

The mission of OARA is to direct, conduct, and support applied research and evaluation, quantitative estimates and forecasts, and dissemination of alcohol and other drug information to the Department, control agencies, and other government agencies. OARA pursues this mission through its science-based research expertise and active partnerships with program divisions within the Department.
