Abstract:

The use of mood altering substances has become part of our modern way of life. According to a study prepared by the Social Research Group at George Washington University, nearly 80 of adult Americans use some alcohol. The impact this lost work time has on military readiness is my primary motivation for developing this handbook on substance abuse for Air University supervisors and commanders. It is designed to be a ready reference guide to assist in the identification and treatment of substance abuse. Although Air Force Regulation 30-2 Social Actions Programs is the primary source, other materials such as books, pamphlets and material from substance abuse guides from other commands and bases are used along with suggestions and recommendations based on my training and eight years of experience as the author, a Social Actions Officer. This guide will give an explanation of Air Force policy on substance abuse, followed by a chapter on your responsibility as a commander and supervisor. There is also discussion of the substance abuser and the evaluationrehabilitation process.
