Drug Strategies is a non-profit research institute that promotes more effective drug abuse prevention, education and treatment.

Drug Strategies, created in 1993 with support from major foundations, is a nonprofit research institute based in Washington, D.C. Our mission is to identify and promote more effective approaches to substance abuse and to increase public understanding of current research on what works and what does not.

Drug Strategies projects assess education, prevention and treatment initiatives across the country and review federal, state and local drug policies and programs. In addition, Drug Strategies has developed a unique, interactive website designed to provide young people accurate, anonymous information about drugs, bubblemonkey.com (in Spanish, changobomba.com).
