"The President's Fiscal Year (FY) 2005 Budget brings needed resources to reduce the use of illegal drugs in the United States. This budget provides funding for the National Drug Control Strategy's (Strategy's) three priorities. There is strong support for the Strategy's Priority I - Stopping Drug Use Before it Starts: Education and Community Action. Here, resources are targeted to support science-based programs and policies that enable young people to reject drug use and help communities fight for a drug- free environment. The President has pledged strong support for Priority II - Healing America's Drug Users: Getting Treatment Resources Where They Are Needed. Significant new funding is focused on bringing resources directly to those seeking clinical treatment and/or recovery support services. Specifically, to reduce drug use, resources must be targeted to assist family, friends, employers, the criminal justice system, and the faith community in helping individuals enter treatment and sustain recovery. The Strategy's Priority III - Disrupting the Market: Attacking the Economic Basis of the Drug Trade--receives substantial support. Here the budget focuses on strengthening enforcement and interdiction efforts and providing new resources for promising new approaches."
