Obama Administration launches Spanish Language Website highlighting
President Obama’s new drug policy reform plan

Website Outlines Details of New U.S. Drug Policy Strategy; Features
Interactive Content Highlighting Unprecedented Actions Proposed by
Administration to Treat Drug Addiction as Public Health Issue, Not Just a
Criminal Justice Issue

(Washington, DC) -  Today, the Office of National Drug Control Policy
(ONDCP) launched a new Spanish language website detailing information
regarding the 2013 National Drug Control Strategy, the Obama
Administration’s primary blueprint for drug policy in the United States.
The new web site is modeled on an innovative, vertical storytelling
platform that features compelling visual content, interactive features and
fully integrated social media sharing components.

 “Drug use and its consequences touch every sector of our society,” said
Gil Kerlikowske National Drug Control Policy Director Gil Kerlikowske. “As
part of our commitment to being the most open and transparent
Administration in history we are pleased to be able to offer details of
President Obama’s drug policy reform plan in Spanish to ensure
accessibility to Spanish speaking Americans and our partners throughout the

The Obama Administration’s science-based plan for reform contains a series
of over 100 specific actions to reduce drug use and its consequences and
expand prevention, treatment, and alternatives to incarceration. The
programs and policy reforms set forth in the 2013 Strategy are built upon
decades of scientific research demonstrating that addiction is a chronic
disease of the brain that can be successfully prevented and treated, not a
moral failure on the part of the individual. The Strategy directs Federal
agencies to expand community-based efforts to prevent drug use before it
begins, empower healthcare workers to intervene early at the first signs of
a substance use disorder, expand access to treatment for those who need it,
support the millions of Americans in recovery, and the expansion of “smart
on crime” approaches to drug enforcement.
