H. CON. RES. 371
Supporting the goals and ideas of National Alcohol and Drug Recovery
H. CON. RES. 371
Whereas 26 million Americans currently suffer the ravages of drug or alcohol
Whereas 85 percent of all crimes are tied to drug or alcohol addiction;
Whereas American taxpayers incurred more than $150 billion in drug-related
criminal and medical costs in 1997 alone--more than they spent on
education, transportation, agriculture, energy, space, and foreign aid
Whereas every dollar invested in drug and alcohol treatment yields seven dollars
in savings in health care costs, criminal justice costs, and lost
productivity costs from job absenteeism, injuries, and subpar work
Whereas treatment for addiction is as effective as treatments for other chronic
medical conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure;
Whereas adolescents who undergo addiction treatment report less use of
marijuana, less heavy drinking, and less criminal involvement;
Whereas other benefits of adolescent addiction treatment include better
psychological adjustment and improved school performance after
Whereas a number of organizations and individuals dedicated to fighting
addiction and promoting treatment and recovery will recognize September
2000 as National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month;
Whereas National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month celebrates the
tremendous strides taken by individuals who have undergone successful
treatment and recognizes those in the treatment field who have dedicated
their lives to helping people recover from addiction; and
Whereas the 2000 national campaign focuses on supporting adolescents in
addiction treatment and recovery, embraces the theme of ``Recovering Our
Future: One Youth at a Time'', and seeks to increase awareness about
alcohol and drug addiction and to promote treatment and recovery for
adolescents and adults: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring),
That the Congress supports the goals and ideas of National Alcohol and
Drug Recovery Month.
Passed the House of Representatives July 24, 2000.
