 New White House Drug Policy Highlighted PRO-ACT
        When the White House issued the 2012 National Drug Control Strategy Reportrecently, it featured the work of PRO-ACT, accompanied by a photograph of Beverly Haberle, PRO-ACT Project Director, and Gil Kerlikowske, Director of National Drug Control Policy. The article appears on page 18 of the Report, in the chapter on integrating treatment for substance abuse disorders into health care and expanding support for recovery.

        PRO-ACT is pleased that the new strategy is guided by the fact that addiction is a chronic brain disease that can be treated and that people with substance abuse disorders can recover. The new policy calls for expansion of community-based recovery support programs, including recovery community organizations. Peer-based recovery support services help individuals access and sustain long-term recovery. PRO-ACT has a positive impact on individuals and their families and the community at large. At each of PRO-ACT's recovery centers, peer-led programs are tailored to the specific needs of recovering individuals in the local community.

        In 2009, the Obama Administration established the Recovery branch of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy to support the estimated 23.5 million Americans in recovery by eliminating barriers to recovery and lifting the stigma associated with drug addiction.
