President Trump Fighting For Drug-Free Communities

Families across the country are affected by the dangers of substance abuse and dependency. President Donald J. Trump’s was no different.



“I had a brother who had a really big alcohol problem,” the President said from the White House this afternoon. “A very tough thing for our family.” Now, a new crisis of addiction is leaving its mark on America: “Sadly, in 2017, an estimated 134 Americans die each day from opioid-related overdoses.”

 

 

So today, in honor of the 20-year anniversary of the Drug-Free Communities Support Program grant awards, President Trump announced $91 million in grants to a record 731 local drug prevention groups across all 50 states. “We’ve never done anything to this extent. We’ve never done anything this large.”

The program works, the evidence shows. “The Drug-Free Communities Program is a proven success, cutting alcohol and prescription drug abuse by an average of nearly 20 percent among high-school students and participating communities,” President Trump said. “Incredible what they’ve been able to do.”

President Trump awards historic number of Drug-Free Community grants.
