2019 National Census for School-Based Recovery Support Services

National census activities are being undertaken to inform recovery science research and strengthen the continuity and coordination of care in all communities.
We are partnering with national associations to conduct national census activities aimed at enhancing resource data reporting. The goal is to strengthen public awareness and education on support programs and services available within communities and at educational institutions. Of importance is our ability to view both national and local landscapes for care and support. This allows us to see the critically important points-of-entry for those looking to obtain personal well-being goals and join a legion of people in stable and rewarding recovery.

We invite program coordinators, administrators, healthcare professionals, and community-based organizations to actively participate and help advance the sophistication of data we are bridging to search engines and open applications.

Office of Postsecondary Education Identification (OPE ID) number for institutions of higher education

The Office of Postsecondary Education Identification (OPE ID) number is assigned by the U.S. Department of Education to identify schools that have Program Participation Agreements (PPA) so that its students are eligible to participate in Federal Student Financial Assistance programs under Title IV regulations.
Where available, Capacitype records associated with collegiate recovery programs and services contain the institutional OPE ID number. This allows for expanded data analysis activities based on information obtained by the Database of Accredited Postsecondary Institutions and Programs. The database contains information reported to the U.S. Department of Education directly by recognized accrediting agencies and state approval agencies. 
The database reflects additional information as it is received from recognized accrediting agencies and state approval agencies. This reported information is not audited. The U.S. Department of Education cannot, therefore, guarantee that the information contained in the database is accurate, current, or complete.
