Sum if in a column of a "if" formula


I have 1 sheet that has a if statement, looking at a multi choice drop down column. "=IF(CONTAINS("CLEC Phone", [Specific item list]@row), "2", "")

Now, I want to create a metrics sheet based off that sheet to calculate the total of that column that may/may not have "2" in them. However, it appears that it can not add this up, as, I believe, it is 'text' and therefore can not calculate it out.

Is my understanding correct? Is there a way around this at all.

Please let me know if i am missing any details on explaining this.
