What are the major elements underlying the navy's approach to eliminating drug and alcohol abuse?
Enhanced detection, deterrence, prevention, intervention, and treatment when necessary. The program emphasizes the constructive use of discipline, preventive education, intervention, and medical treatment for members who are responsibe and who reject further abuse.

What is the general unit quota requirement for urinalysis?
10 to 20 percent of its assigned personnel monthly (this includes search and seizure, inspection, fitness for duty etc.). Commands shall submit one unit sweep of all assigned personnel per fiscal year. Except for unit sweeps, submissions greater than 40% require Echelon THREE prior approval. To ensure 100% of personnel are tested annually, commands shall conduct an end of fiscal year unit sweep of all individuals not tested in the course of the year.

PREVENT 2000 is a 24 hour prevention education and health promotions course targeting 18-25 year old group covering alcohol and drug abuse, interpersonal resonsibility, financial responsibility and health and promotion.

What is the Navy's policy on alcohol use?
Responsible use. Responsible use is the application of self-imposed limitations of time, place, and quantity when consuming alcoholic beverages. Alcohol consumption is never an acceptable excuse for misconduct or poor judgment.
Alcohol shall not be consumed to the extent that it:
(1) Impairs the rational and full exercise of a member’s
mental and physical faculties while on duty or in the performance of military duties.

(2) Reduces the member’s dependability and reliability.

By way of limited exception, commanders, COS, and OICS may authorize consumption of alcoholic beverages during normal working hours for official functions, ceremonies, and other infrequent command-sponsored events. Additionally, the consumption of alcoholic beverages may be authorized by cognizant authority at unified/joint/combined commands for certain social occasions and events when participation by Department of the Navy (DON) personnel is expected to foster good will and promote international and/or community relations.
What is the DON policy regaridng separation of individuals with alcoholic related misconduct?
(1) Commands will discipline as appropriate and process for administrative separation those members whose alcohol-related misconduct is severe (see “serious offense” definition), who are repeat offenders, or who do not respond favorably to treatment.

(2) Members who incur an alcohol incident, any time in their careers, after having received treatment that resulted from a previous alcohol incident, will be processed for administrative separation, unless a written waiver is obtained from the Commander, Navy Personnel Command (COMNAVPERSCOM).

What is the DON policy regarding alcohol dependence and abuse when it does not result in misconduct?
Alcohol dependence and alcohol abuse are recognized as treatable conditions. Referral for treatment, when there is no alcohol-related misconduct, regardless of whether the referral was initiated by the member or his/her CO, should not be viewed as detrimental when recommending the member for promotion, command screen, or special assignment.
What is the DON policy regarding alcohol-related misconduct?
Alcohol-related misconduct, however, should be considered a significant fitness/performance factor. Per ALNAV 080/96, the Secretary of the Navy has determined any substantiated drunk driving (i.e., Driving Under the Influence/Driving While Intoxicated (DUI/DWI)) offense when found guilty to be a substantial failure in judgment, behavior, and leadership. Such a lack of personal responsibility and general disregard for the safety of oneself and the public is incompatible with the high standards of conduct and behavior expected of members of the Naval Service.
