Annotation: This report contains information about the Federal role in helping communities establish drug prevention programs.
Abstract: The authors of this report attempted to determine: (1) what the Federal Government expects of community-based coalitions and how it is helping them meet those expectations; (2) what community-based coalitions are trying to accomplish and how helpful they think Federal assistance has been; (3) what information is available to show whether community-based coalitions are successful; and (4) the degree to which community groups participated annually in developing the national drug control strategy. The following are among the findings presented herein: (1) Evidence showing whether community based coalitions can succeed in reducing drug use is limited; and (2) Despite the demonstration grants awarded and the promising nature of the community coalition approach, the Federal Government still faces a number of challenges in stimulating other communities with similar problems to mobilize against drug use.
