National Drug Control Strategy. Update
Office of National Drug Control Policy
The first National Drug Control Strategy set ambitious two and five-year performance based goals: (1) to lower the rate of drug use by 10 percent over 2 years among both youth and adults; and (2) to lower the rate by 25 percent over 5 years. The chapters in this updated version are keyed to the strategies three priorities: (1) Stopping Use Before It Starts; (2) Healing America's Drug Users; and (3) Disrupting the Market. The chapter on Stopping Use Before It Starts examines the distinct roles of schools, communities, and the media in making parents more effective in the crucial challenge of guiding young people to avoid drugs and alcohol. The section on Healing America's Drug Users addresses the special challenge of helping the dependent and profiles the Nation's first Access to Recovery voucher recipient as she navigates life after prison and the competing demands of drug treatment and a job search. The section on Disrupting the Market provides a progress report on the efforts we are making--both foreign and domestic--to disrupt the availability and purity of illegal drugs, through source country efforts, interdiction programs, and investigative operations. By integrating program goals and effectiveness information into the National Drug Control Strategy, the Administration has provided a sound basis for program accountability through the adjustment and reallocation of Federal resources to programs that are successful and can demonstrate results. The following are appended: (1) National Drug Control Budget Summary; and (2) Acknowledgments. (Contains 20 figures.)
