The Drug Abuse Office and Treatment Act of 1972 created the Strategy Council on Drug Abuse and required that Council to publish annually a Federal Strategy/or Drug Abuse and Drug Traffic Prevention. Since the last Federal Strategy was published in June 1975, a great deal has happened.
In response to the increasing availability and use or illicit drugs. President Ford, in May of 1975, directed the Domestic Council to undertake as thorough review and assessment of the Federal program to control drug abuse, to give him a frank assessment of its effectiveness, and to make recommendations concerning ways to make the Federal program more effective in the future. The Domestic Council Drug Abuse Task Force, created to discharge this responsibility, reported its findings and recommendations to the President in September 1975. That report, the White Paper on Drug Abuse, was endorsed by the President and has become the centerpiece of a revitalized Federal program to control drug abuse.
This Federal Strategy for Drug Abuse and Drug Traffic Prevention 1976 attempts to place the events of the last eighteen months in perspective and to inform the nation or the future direction or the Federal program. It analyses the progress which has been made in combating drug abuse, it identifies and examines the "open agenda" of remaining problems and it charts a course which should guide Federal efforts in this area over the next several years. Specifically, Chapter 1 outlines the overall Federal strategy for dealing with the drug abuse problem and refines and extends several basic components of the strategy. Chapter 2 presents an assessment of the nature and extent of drug abuse in America, focusing particularly on the last three years. Chapter 3 summarizes the considerable progress which has been made in improving the Federal drug abuse program over the past eighteen months. Finally, Chapter 4 discusses the remaining problems and outlines the framework for dealing with them in the next several years.
The Strategy Council submits this document with full knowledge that it does not provide all of the answers to solving the drug abuse problem. The issues are complex and changing and the Federal effort represents only part of what must be a national effort to deal with drug abuse. However. the Federal Strategy for 1976 represents a sound base upon which a truly national commitment to combating drug abuse can he built.
