Community Epidemiology Work Group (CEWG)

What We Do:

Established in 1976, the Community Epidemiology Work Group (CEWG) is a network composed of researchers from major metropolitan areas of the United States and selected foreign countries which meets semiannually to discuss the current epidemiology of drug abuse. The primary mission of the work group is to provide ongoing community-level surveillance of drug abuse through analysis of quantitative and qualitative research data. Through this program the CEWG provides current descriptive and analytical information regarding the nature and patterns of drug abuse, emerging trends, characteristics of vulnerable populations and social and health consequences.
