U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is a federal agency under the Department of Justice tasked with enforcing the controlled substances laws and regulations of the United States. The DEA’s mission includes reducing the supply of illegal drugs, preventing drug abuse through educational initiatives, and dismantling drug trafficking organizations. Fortier Loss Control supports the DEA’s efforts by providing businesses with the tools and knowledge to maintain drug-free workplaces, ensuring safety and compliance.

Enforcement and Regulation

The DEA is responsible for enforcing the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), which includes regulating the manufacturing, distribution, and dispensing of legally produced drugs to prevent their diversion into illegal channels. By working closely with federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, the DEA conducts investigations and raids to dismantle drug trafficking organizations. Fortier Safety helps businesses understand these regulations to maintain compliance and support law enforcement efforts​ (DEA)​​

Education and Prevention Initiatives

The DEA is heavily involved in education and prevention programs aimed at reducing drug abuse. Initiatives like the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day encourage the safe disposal of unused medications, preventing drug misuse. Programs such as Operation Prevention and Just Think Twice provide valuable resources for educators, parents, and teens to understand the dangers of drug abuse. Fortier Safety integrates these educational resources into workplace training programs to promote awareness and prevent substance abuse​
