What Works: Effective Public Health Responses to Drug Use
This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. The U.S. has historically suffered from some of the highest rates of drug abuse in the world, and, as a result, has made unparalleled investments in demand reduction research and programming. This report takes stock of the knowledge we have gained about what works to reduce drug abuse. The Nat. Drug Control Strategy seeks to put resources where research and experience have proven that they can have the greatest effect in reducing the demand for drugs in America. The results in successfully decreasing drug use illustrate what can be achieved through the implementation of a balanced strategy that focuses on research-proven approaches around the world that are confronting drug abuse problems of their own. Illustrations.
