ABSTRACT

National Drug Control Strategy: 'FY 2021 Budget and Performance Summary'   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the Executive Summary: "Upon taking office, the Trump Administration has taken a whole-of-government approach to addressing the addiction crisis. Moreover, the sustained focus since the beginning of the Administration has contributed to some encouraging progress - the first decline in fatal drug-related overdoses in nearly three decades. Nonetheless, there is so much more to accomplish. Not only is the opioid epidemic still killing far too many Americans, it has evolved and now includes increased use of methamphetamine, cocaine, and other dangerous substances. For this reason, the Trump Administration has not only again in this budget dedicated significant resources to stopping illicit drug use, but it also supported increased flexibility in how states can use drug control funds so that they can tailor their efforts to the greatest drug threats faced in their area of the country. Fortunately, this substantial commitment of funds has been supported, on a bipartisan basis, by the Congress. The White House, as well as Departments and agencies, will be working closely with the Congress to ensure the President's ambitious Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 request is fully funded."
