An alcoholism and drug abuse program has been established within the foreign affairs agencies State, USAID, and USIA. The objective is to educate personnel on alcoholism and drug abuse, to encourage employees with these problems to avail themselves of the counseling and assistance provided on a confidential basis by management and the medical staff, and to define policies and procedures for handling alcoholism and drug abuse cases.
