Title: 2004 Annual AAAA Convention


1
Deployment TestingThe Soldier is the Centerpiece
of Readiness
Buddy Horne
2
Terminal Learning Objective Explain the US
Armys procedures for drug testing Soldiers while
they are deployed
3
Army Regulation 600-85 Army Substance Abuse
Program
Commanders will maintain ASAP elements while
deployed, to the maximum extent possible.
4
As you continue to execute your missions in
support of theGlobal War on Terrorism, I ask you
and your leaders tokeep up the focus on this
program. . . Whether your units are deployed or
at home station, continue to emphasize that the
use of illicit drugs is inconsistent with Army
values and has the potential to significantly
reduce our overall readiness posture. PETE
R J. SCHOOMAKER General, US Army 9
November 2005
5
Drug Testing in Deployed Areas The Issue
  • Testing rates were low
  • Discrepancy rates were high
  • ADCOs/IBTCs could not communicate effectively
    with deployed units
  • No established responsibilities or procedures for
    testing and reporting results in deployed areas

6
Drug Testing in Deployed Areas The Issue
  • Multitude of collection, shipping, and reporting
    methods
  • Deployed test results mixed with home station
    results made analysis difficult
  • Deployed commanders lacked visibility of positive
    rates and issues to be addressed
  • Supply problems

7
All Army Activities Message087/2006, 26APR06
  • Soldiers under the influence of drugs are a
    danger to themselves, their fellow Soldiers,
    mission accomplishment, and the civilian
    populace. It is every leaders responsibility to
    educate Soldiers, deter drug use and identify
    drug abusers. This responsibility does not stop
    during deployments.

8
The Armys deployed drug testing program is
primarily focused on
Bosnia Kosovo
AFG
IRAQ
Working on Qatar
KUWAIT
