National Drug Control Strategy. 2008 Annual Report
Office of National Drug Control Policy
This report presents the 2008 National Drug Control Strategy of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. The overarching goal of the President's Strategy is to reduce drug use in America through a balanced approach that focuses on stopping use before it starts, healing America's drug users, and disrupting the market for illegal drugs. Chapter 1 addresses the prevention priority, stopping drug use before it starts, and details efforts to expand and amplify the cultural shift away from drug use, especially among young people. Chapter 2 details efforts to implement the treatment priority, intervening and healing those who have already succumbed to drug use and addiction. Finally, Chapter 3 focuses on U.S. initiatives to disrupt the market for illicit drugs--our supply reduction effort. (Contains 25 figures.)
