The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) released the Administration’s National Drug Control Strategy 2020 (664KB), which “aims to reduce substance use through public health and public safety measures.” The 2020 National Drug Control Strategy focuses on reducing the number of Americans dying from drug overdoses.

ONDCP also released the first National Treatment Plan for Substance Use Disorder (333KB), which addresses elements of the treatment gap and provides a plan to address this gap. Priorities include increasing access to evidence-based addiction treatment, including medication-assisted treatment (MAT) for opioid use disorder, peer support services for those in recovery, and access to housing, training, educational, and employment opportunities that foster a sense of stability, pride, and engagement in the community.
