Statewide Ethnographic Assessment of Drug Use and Services (SEADS Project)


The SEADS project aims to understand drug use, related services, and opportunities for enhancement, from the perspective of people who use drugs and local stakeholders across the state through regional ethnographic assessments. The project is a collaboration between researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and the University of Maryland with support from the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) through CDC Public Health Crisis Response funds. As part of this project, the team will conduct interviews with drug users, service providers, policy makers, and other stakeholders including health departments and individuals who engage with people who use drugs across the state.
