National Strategy

The National Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Strategy: 2015 Update reflects the consensus of a broad-based alliance of more than 30 not-for-profit health and safety organizations and professional associations. The updated document expands upon the proposals set forth in three prior versions, and recommends that more wide-ranging intervention and treatment policies be adopted nationwide to reduce prescription drug abuse and improve consumer access to high-quality health care. CLAAD’s policy positions are established through a consensus process, in which at least 80 percent of the participants must represent not-for-profit organizations. This rule of governance ensures that the public interest drives CLAAD’s priorities, as opposed to the interests of individual stakeholders.
