National Drug Control Strategy, 2006
The White House
This report presents a summary of the Fiscal Year 2007 Budget for the National Drug Control Strategy within the three key priority areas; education and community action, treatment and intervention, and disruption in the illegal drug market. The first chapter, "Stopping Drug Use Before It Starts," outlines the Administration's work to prevent the initiation of drug use. An integral part of this effort is the new "Above the Influence" initiative by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP)--National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign--and the Partnership for a Drug Free America. This initiative, which consists of television advertisements and interactive web-based outreach, calls on young people to be true to themselves by remaining "above the influence." The second chapter, "Healing America's Drug Users," highlights initiatives that treat drug users. Key initiatives include the President's Access to Recovery program, which expands treatment options, and drug courts, which seek to rehabilitate offenders with substance abuse problems. The third chapter, "Disrupting Drug Markets," outlines the Administration's work at home and abroad to disrupt the availability of illicit drugs, through source country efforts, interdiction programs, and investigative operations. We are attacking market vulnerabilities in the illegal drug trade and applying pressure to reduce profits and raise the risks of drug trafficking. As in past years, this year's "National Drug Control Strategy" highlights the good work faith-based and community organizations are doing to combat the scourge of illicit drugs in their own communities. The Strategy seeks to harness these efforts, and the work of state and local officials, so that Americans work together to reach the President's goal of reducing overall drug use.
