The Obama administration's new national drug-control strategy—released May 11—aims to reduce illicit drug use and its negative consequences through a five-year plan that balances prevention, treatment, law enforcement, and international cooperation to fight the illegal drug trade.

These are the three specific "drug challenges" that administration officials said they will focus on this year:

  • Cutting prescription drug abuse,

  • Reducing driving while under the influence of drugs, and

  • Preventing drug abuse.

  • They have also announced related numerical goals for the next five years, which include the following:

  • Decreasing drug abuse among young adults by 10 percent,

  • Reducing the number of drug-related deaths by 15 percent, and

  • Cutting the incidence of driving under the influence of drugs by 10 percent blacksquare
