The Drug Demand Reduction (DDR) Program

Program directly impacts mission readiness. The presence in the military environment of persons who engage in drug abuse seriously impairs accomplishing the military mission and is a thread to the health, safety, security and welfare of the total force. The success of this long-standing program is the product of strong command support levels. The Air Force does not tolerate the illegal or improper use of drugs by Air Force personnel.


We are located in building 699 on Risner Circle directly behind main lodging. The DDRP entrance is on the right side of the building, while DLA is located to the left.
