Working with States

Special Agent Keith Warzecha, the Demand Reduction Coordinator for the Arkansas District Office, provided Governor Mike Huckabee and his immediate staff with a briefing on drug trends in Arkansas.

DEA Demand Reduction coordinators are active on the state level across the nation, working with Governors’ offices and state agencies to reduce the demand for drugs. States receiving federal prevention grants must include DEA Demand Reduction coordinators on Governors’ Prevention Councils. DRCs provide information and drug law enforcement input on drug activity and trends to states to ensure that prevention programs address the most significant drug problems.

Currently, DEA Demand Reduction Coordinators are working with states and territories which have received federal prevention grants from SAMHSA.

In many states, Demand Reduction coordinators partner with state agencies to address major drug abuse problems such as methamphetamine, heroin, prescription drugs and marijuana.
