This thesis is the study of the cost associated with expanding the Navy's drug abuse education program as a means of controlling the Navy's drug abuse problem. It focuses on the former Navy Drug and Alcohol Safety Action Program (NADSAP) now the Personal Responsibility and Values Education and Training (PREVENT) course. The thesis asks the questions: What are the characteristics of the Navy's drug population? What are the costs/benefits of the Navy's Level III rehabilitation program? What are the costs of separating sailors who use illegal drugs? What are the costs/benefits of the Navy's drug education program? In conclusion, the thesis proposes that the Navy's drug education program is the most cost-effective alternative and should be expanded. It also suggest that the appropriate mix of education, rehabilitation, and separation would balance the marginal benefits per dollar for each alternative.
