2011 National Drug Control Strategy. Executive Summary
Office of National Drug Control Policy
In May of 2010, President Obama released the Administration's inaugural "National Drug Control Strategy", a comprehensive approach to combat the public health and safety consequences posed by drug use. Now, a year later, the Administration is releasing its update building upon that initial "Strategy". The "Strategy" establishes ambitious goals to reduce both drug use and drug-related consequences. This five-year plan aims to cut drug use among youth by 15 percent, drug-induced deaths and drug-related morbidity by 15 percent, and drugged driving by 10 percent. To achieve these goals, the "Strategy" focuses on seven core areas: (1) Strengthening efforts to prevent drug use in communities; (2) Seeking early intervention opportunities in health care; (3) Integrating treatment for substance use disorders into health care, and supporting recovery; (4) Breaking the cycle of drug use, crime, delinquency, and incarceration; (5) Disrupting domestic drug trafficking and production; (6) Strengthening international partnerships; and (7) Improving information systems to better analyze, assess, and locally address drug use and its consequences.
