At the moment, the technology of roadside drug testing is not as advanced as that of breathalysing for alcohol. Despite this, improvements are being made and once tests are available that can give accurate and immediate information on all the illegal drugs an individual may have used, they need to be implemented as part of a roadside testing campaign. In addition there is an urgent need to improve the availability of affordable transport late at night when clubs close. If the only choice is between an expensive taxi or driving your own car after having used illegal drugs, it can hardly be that surprising if many young people choose the latter. Many of the young people interviewed did not know the legal position regarding drug- driving. There is a clear need then to provide much wider information on the legal consequences of drug-driving. Finally, we need to try and change public attitudes towards drugs and driving. Over the last few years there has been a dramatic reduction in the numbers of people arrested for drink-driving. Indeed, driving under the influence of alcohol has come to be seen as socially unacceptable. The same needs to happen in relation to illegal drug use.
More than 18% of Americans experience alcohol abuse or alcohol dependence at some time in their lives.

Drug addiction is a pattern of repeated drug taking that usually results in tolerance (the need for greater amounts of the drug to achieve the same effect), withdrawal (physical and cognitive effects when drug use declines or stops), and compulsive drug taking behavior (drug taking that persists despite efforts to reduce intake and despite problems with family, friends, and work). Drug addiction encompasses a diverse range of drugs (such as alcohol, cannabis, amphetamines, and cocaine) and is caused by many different factors.
Residential treatment offers intensive drug addiction help over a period of weeks or months. This form of treatment has some advantages over out-patient treatment, although it may not be suitable for everyone. For example, those who are responsible for caring for young children may be better suited to attendance at an out patient treatment program. Residential treatment offers a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment where individuals can confront their own drug addiction and associated issues, with the help of qualified staff. Therapy usually consists of a mixture of group counseling, individual counseling and an introduction to the principles of a drug recovery program.
An effective therapeutic community attends to the many needs of the individual, not just his or her drug use. Care given at a therapeutic community addresses the individual's drug use and associated medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal problems. Also, a therapeutic community will continue to be flexible and provide ongoing assessments of the individual's needs, which may change during the course of care.
Remaining in care at a therapeutic community for an adequate period of time is critical for treatment effectiveness. The time depends on an individual's needs. For most people, the significant improvement is reached at about 3 months in treatment.
