Taxonomy of resource data types and services for the addiction field

Resource maps use a comprehensive taxonomy to classify the types of resources and services that are available for data set classification, organization, and search operations. These resource types and services reflect on-going research into the ways in which people look for and identify prevention, early intervention, treatment, and recovery support resources in their communities. 

  • Resource types indicated in bold  – a classification system for the broad types of resources that can be identified during asset mapping activities in the addiction and recovery field. 
  • Services tags for search – a set of identifying terms by resource type that can assist those searching for specific programs and services in their communities.
  • Extended profiles indicated by (*) - an indication of extended profile questions available for detailed data collection and census research.
