Substance abuse takes a terrible toll on the public health, public safety and financial resources of the United States. The Administration's national drug control policy seeks to reduce Americans' drug use and its related health, social and criminal problems. To help meet this goal, the Administration has developed five demand reduction priority areas. The Administration is requesting $151.3 million in new funding across the Federal government to strengthen efforts to detect and prevent and treat illicit drug use in our communities and break the cycle of illicit drug use, crime, and incarceration. This book provides an overview of the National Drug Control Strategy for fiscal year 2011 and an examination of issues for consideration in reauthorising the 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.).

America has been faced with drug use and the problems associated with harmful drugs for over a century. We have spent billions of dollars waging this war against an elusive enemy with little success. The 1998 National Drug Control Strategy is a comprehensive ten-year plan to reduce illegal drug use in the United States by 50%. If this goal were achieved, it would be the lowest drug- use rate in American history. However, this strategy does not focus the majority of resources, specifically the budget, against the "center of gravity" of our nation's drug problems, the demand for illegal drugs. This paper will examine the history of our fight against drugs and the effectiveness of our efforts. Through this historical analysis, this paper will determine whether we can expect to achieve the goals in our current drug control strategy. Finally, it recommends where to focus our dollars to achieve the greatest results.
