Anti-Drug Abuse Strategy Report. State of New York. 1990 Update.
New York Governor's Office, Albany. Statewide Anti-Drug Abuse Council.
This annual report from the Statewide Anti-Drug Abuse Council of New York proposes strategies for the coming year. Ongoing support for the state and local law enforcement efforts is reaffirmed as a vital component of the strategy. The council promotes a strengthening of their commitment and focus on severely impacted populations, integration of governmental capacities, more involvement of citizens, and more efficiency in coordinating and pooling of efforts. After the executive summary, the report examines drug and alcohol-related trends for New York State and the nation. Next, the report discusses criminal and juvenile justice system progress and priorities. The issues here include strength through coordination and resource sharing; federal participation in drug enforcement; attacking major drug trafficking organizations; controlling instruments of the drug trade; new tools for crime control; protecting the integrity of communities; taking the profit out of the drug business; user sanctions for the alcohol and drug-impaired driver; and interventions with troubled youth. The next section on treatment progress and priorities includes descriptions of expanding services. Issues for improving quality and accountability are discussed. The final section on prevention progress and priorities discusses the following target groups: high risk groups; the community; schools; family; and the workplace. Also discussed are the media and prevention research. Priorities for 1991 and beyond are presented within the context of each section. Most sections include references. (LLL)
