The DDB envisions, “DRUG-FREE COMMUNITIES by 2022”

The DDB is committed to stamping out the illicit supply of and demand for dangerous drugs and precursor chemicals, and to promote regional and international cooperation in drug abuse prevention and control.

Republic Act No. 9165 or the Comprehensive Dangerous Drugs Act of 2002 mandates the DDB to be the policy-making and strategy-formulating body on drug prevention and control. It shall develop and adopt a comprehensive, integrated, unified and balanced national drug abuse prevention and control strategy.
