HIDTA’s purpose is to reduce drug use & its adverse consequences. The 29 HIDTAs coordinate federal, state and local anti-drug abuse efforts from a local, regional and national perspective leveraging resources at all levels in a true partnership. Every year HIDTAs identify the most current threat, develop a strategy to address the threat and evaluate the results. This procedure allows HIDTAs the flexibility to adjust in a timely manner to redirect resources to have the greatest impact in an effective and efficient manner.
