White House Releases Latest National Drug Control Strategy

The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), has released its most recent National Drug Control Strategy which outlines the Trump Administration’s efforts to combat drug trafficking and use.

The report highlights one strategic outcome– “building a stronger, healthier, drug-free society today and in the years to come by drastically reducing the number of Americans losing their lives to drug addiction in today’s crisis and preparing now to dominate the drug environment of the future.” In order to accomplish this objective, the report offers a multi-pronged approach focused on:

  • preventing drug use;
  • offering treatment services which promote long-term recovery; and
  • reducing the availability of illegal drugs in America.
