Abstract: The ONDCP was created by Congress with passage of the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1988. As a component of the Executive Office of the President, ONDCP is responsible for developing and monitoring Federal policies to reduce the demand for illegal drugs; prevent the initiation of substance use by youth; combat drug production and trafficking; and reduce drug-related crime, violence, and disease. Each year, the ONDCP presents a model for the national strategy that will be pursued in addressing drug-related issues in the United States. In addition to its leadership role in developing and coordinating national drug control policies, ONDCP also functions as a central organizing body in managing anti-drug efforts and certifying the drug-control budgets of other Federal agencies. A key role of ONDCP is to evaluate and coordinate the international and domestic anti-drug efforts of other Federal agencies whose mission encompasses drug-related issues and services. This includes ensuring that these efforts sustain and complement State and local anti-drug activities. The ONDCP director advises the President of changes in the organization, management, budgeting, and personnel of Federal agencies involved in the Nation’s anti-drug efforts.
