Abstract:

The Commanding General has directed a triaxial program of education, rehabilitation, and law enforcement to counter drug and alcohol abuse problems within CONARC. Central to success of this program is provision of credible troop information and conduct of intensified education programs emphasizing the physiological and psychological dangers and the moral and legal implications of both alcoholism and drug abuse. Full details of the Armys exemption and rehabilitation programs will receive the widest dissemination to assist the potential volunteer in seeking help. Concurrently, positive steps will be taken to identify alcohol and drug abusers at the earliest possible moment and insure that competent medical attention is available and accessible. The recent DOD drug use testing program in Southeast Asia has helped identify returnees who require continued medical supervision. A complete program of follow-up rehabilitative services is necessary for these personnel.
