The National Drug Control Policy

The discussion assignment provides a forum for discussing relevant topics for this week on the basis of the course competencies covered.

For this assignment, make sure you post your initial response to the Discussion Area by the due date assigned.

To support your work, use your course and text readings and also use the South University Online Library. As in all assignments, cite your sources in your work and provide references for the citations in APA format.

Start reviewing and responding to the postings of your classmates as early in the week as possible. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ initial postings. Participate in the discussion by asking a question, providing a statement of clarification, providing a point of view with a rationale, challenging an aspect of the discussion, or indicating a relationship between two or more lines of reasoning in the discussion. Cite sources in your responses to other classmates. Complete your participation for this assignment by the end of the week.

The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), a component of the Executive Office of the President of the United States, was established in 1988 by the Anti-Drug Abuse Act. ONDCP’s stated goal is to establish policies, priorities, and objectives to eradicate illicit drug use, manufacturing, trafficking, drug-related crime and violence, and drug-related health consequences in the U.S.

Review the most recent National Drug Control Strategy. The 2015 strategy can be viewed here.

  • Are there any problems with ONDCP’s goals or objectives? Why?
  • How do these goals and objectives match up against the criteria we examined?
  • Are there any forces that you think will ultimately hinder the ONDCP’s ability to achieve its stated goals and objectives? Why?
  • Describe how you would measure outcomes for this strategy, if you were in charge of planning.

Cite any sources using APA format on a separate page. Let’s learn how to cite sources using APA guidelines.
