Institute for Behavior and Health, Inc.
This website is sponsored and maintained by the Institute for Behavior and Health, Inc. (IBH). Over the past years, the United States has made impressive progress in the fight against illegal drugs. Illegal drug use peaked in 1979 when 14.1% of Americans age 12 and older used an illegal drug in the past month, declining to a low in 1992 of 5.8%. In 2016, that figure was 10.6%.
IBH views the fight against drugged driving as a significant part of the overall national effort to reduce drug use and an important way to make the roads safer for everyone who travels on them. While drunk driving rates have declined -- with alcohol-impaired driving fatalities dropping 51% from 1982 to 2015 (Responsibility.org) -- only in the last decade has drugged driving been recognized as a significant threat to highway safety. A new focus on drugged driving builds on and enhances the successful efforts that have been made in the previous decades to reduce drunk driving.
Reducing drugged driving is a vital part of US efforts to reduce the demand for illegal drugs. The money from American drug users now fuels deadly domestic and international drug trafficking. Reducing that demand is the key to building a better drug policy for our country.
IBH seeks to partner with drunk driving initiatives to build stronger policies and programs that will help achieve three vital public health and public safety goals: making roadways safer, reducing excessive drinking and illegal drug use, and helping people with substance abuse problems get the help they need to become drug-free.
IBH promotes both national and international policies that reduce illegal drug use and the problems that use creates. Non-partisan and non-political, IBH serves as a catalyst for change by promoting cooperation among government agencies, non-profits, research institutions and grassroots community groups. Established in 1978, IBH is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that develops new ideas to reduce illegal drug use.
