Although the Army has implemented a variety of programs and has used different techniques, alcohol and drug abuse in the Army continue at an unacceptable level. An examination was made of the nature of past Army efforts to control this problem with specific emphasis on those aspects which were successful, unsuccessful, and on those which offer the most promise for the future. Data were gathered through a literature search, reliance on studies sponsored by the Office of Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel Drug Policy Branch, Office of The Surgeon General Medical Research and Development Command, and the Army Research Institute. Other studies and program report data were also useful. There are currently major deficiencies in the prevention, identification, and rehabilitation areas of the Army Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Program. Recommendations of change are made however, due to the dynamic and ubiquitous nature of the problem, no modifications are likely to be eternally applicable. The ultimate solution is inextricably linked to enlightened and concerned leadership. Author
