Reaction appears generally positive to the first-year policy priorities on illicit drug use issued last week by the Biden administration, although experts did say they would have added a few more things to the wish list.

Seven Major Priorities

The priorities were released last Thursday by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP). They include:

  • Expanding access to evidence-based treatment.
  • Advancing racial equity issues in our approach to drug policy.
  • Enhancing evidence-based harm reduction efforts.
  • Supporting evidence-based prevention efforts to reduce youth substance use.
  • Reducing the supply of illicit substances.
  • Advancing recovery-ready workplaces and expanding the addiction workforce.
  • Expanding access to recovery support services.
