When the Special Action Office for Drug Abuse Prevention (SAODAP) was established in 1972, its first order of business was to assess the extent of the drug problem and to identify the programs available for dealing with it. A decision was made by that office to attempt to provide to management, at both the State and Federal levels, an effective decision making tool in the form of meaningful displays of data that would indicate the degrees of effectiveness and costs of the various approaches to the drug abuse problem. This report describes the Integrated Drug Abuse Management Information Systems (IDAMIS), developed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse as a result of a charge from SAODAP. This system maintains and provides timely program, technical, and financial information on State and Federal drug abuse prevention activities. (Author/PC)
