Group II - Drug Demand Reduction


The Civil Air Patrol Drug Demand Reduction program assists squadrons, groups, wings, and regions to instill an agressive, positive, drug-free attitude in Civil Air Patrol members, Air Force families, DoD civilians, and school-age children through a comprehensive program that:
Promotes CAP as a positive community service lifestyle.
Encourages youth to remain in school.
Focuses on drug abuse education, prevention and awareness.
Provides positive activities as an alternative to drugs and gang violence.

Through strengthening the Cadet Program and supporting our cadets in a drug awareness program, we make the public aware that Civil Air Patrol is doing something about drugs. Our cadets live with drugs and alcohol abuse every day in school, in the neighborhood and sometimes even within their families. By the time our cadets graduate from high school, they will know someone who was killed by a drunk driver or someone dead from drugs.

Civil Air Patrol cadets have the chance to “have a life” as well as save lives. They want to extend that chance to others through awareness programs and through sharing Civil Air Patrol Programs with other kids. Civil Air Patrol cadets are already part of the solution, whether through Students Against Drunk Drivers, DARE, or similar programs in school, or through keeping their lives clean.
The Drug Demand Reduction Program is chartered with the responsibility to make the CAP an environment that promotes and supports education, community involvement, social responsibility and respect for individuals.

See CAPR 52-22 Drug Demand Reduction Program  This regulation provides instructions and guidance to support the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) Drug Demand Reduction Program (DDRP). It is designed to guide CAP efforts to plan, develop and execute successful DDR programs at all organizational levels. CAP has received special funding by the Air Force (AF) to assist in supporting AF family members and Department of Defense (DoD) civilians in demand reduction outreach programs. The Air Force Drug Demand Reduction Program reference is AFI 44-159.
  • Increase knowledge and awareness about the dangers of drug abuse
