    Federal, State Governments Target Prescription Drug Abuse
    November 27, 2005 03:27 PM EST

    by Jim Kouri - The number of people who had used pain relievers non-medically at least once during their lifetime increased 5 percent from 2002 to 2003, totaling more than 31 million people. Current non-medical use of pain relievers increased by 15 percent among young adults.

    The Office of National Drug Control Policy is working with state legislatures to cut down the rising numbers of prescription drug abusers. National surveys show that the non-medical use of prescription drugs continues to rise in America.

    With the President’s 2005 National Drug Control Strategy, there is greater focus to regulate prescription drugs in an effort to curb the rising abuse. One of the main avenues is state-level prescription drug monitoring programs, which have taken a leading role in detecting and deterring the diversion of popular prescription controlled substances. Prescription drug monitoring programs are currently in place or plan to be operational in 24 states this year.

    According to the ONDCP, programs and efforts that do not reduce drug use must be restructured or eliminated, an effort to use taxpayer money wisely that this Administration takes seriously.

    President Bush also seeks $80 million during fiscal year 2006 for Drug-Free Communities Support Programs. There are about 5,000 community anti-drug coalitions in America right now, many of whom have done an excellent job at reducing drug use through help from all sectors of society, including health care, law enforcement, business, drug treatment, and education.

    Whether coalitions seek to provide drug prevention programs and early intervention services to youth, rehabilitation programs to addicts and non-violent drug offenders or stop the diversion and abuse of prescription drugs, working together has proven to be successful. And from the mouth of the Office of National Drug Control Policy the message is clear, only use programs that demonstrate results, otherwise find something else that does work.

    I smoked a little pot back in the 60's and 70's. Other than that, never have and have no desire to do so.

    And I think perhaps I worded the thing wrong, I guess if someone was a heavy user and felt that it was no big deal they would not answer properly because they would not consider it a Substance abuse problem, but maybe a Substance Use problem...


    I would think so, I mean no one would know, for crying out loud..

    why what happens next week, brain? :shrug:
