The Quest for Drug Control

Yale University Press

This chapter continues the discussion of the efforts of the Nixon administration to curb the drug use issue, but this time with a focus on treatment and rehabilitation. From the initial efforts to act against drug use as a crime, these new efforts were more concerned with public health measures. It notes that there were a number of strengths to the approach of the Nixon administration: funding levels for treatment and rehabilitation were high and problems of drug use within the military were addressed. In addition, the chapter takes a look at Nixon's antipathy towards the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) and the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs (BNDD).

Keywords:   treatment, rehabilitation, public health measures, funding levels, military drug use, HEW, BNDD
