Abstract:

A two-volume study develops a profile of the national drug problem in the United States. Surveys of drug use have been statistically analyzed to determine patterns of drug usage for all major drugs of abuse. The profile includes reasons why drugs are abused the national response to the drug problem in three areas--law enforcement, education, and rehabilitation and a projection of national trends over the next several years. It excludes consideration of alcohol abuse and drug abuse in the Armed Forces.
