Excerpt
Background: The Drug Education for Youth (DEFY) program began as a special initiative of the Secretary of the Navy in 1992 when the Secretary of the Navy?s Drug Demand Reduction Task Force (DDRTF) was established. DEFY fulfills the DDRTF mission to develop and execute a prototype drug demand reduction project for innovative, positive, long-term community involvement. To improve the support provided to deployed sailors and marines and their families and to demonstrate the Navy?s commitment to families and encouraging a healthy, drug-free lifestyle, DDRTF developed the prototype curriculum for the DEFY program between 1992 and 1993. The first two programs were conducted in Alameda, California, and Pensacola, Florida, in the summer of 1993. From 1993 to 1999, the DEFY program expanded to 35 Department of the Navy sites. The partnership with the Executive Office for Weed and Seed (EOWS) at the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) began in 1996. From 1996 to 1999, Weed and Seed DEFY expanded from 3 to 64 programs nationwide.
