ii.    Determining the physical, social and psychological problems associated with the drug abuse problems e.g., mental illness, traffic accidents, family disintegration, etc.
iii.    Establishing the level of violence associated with drug abuse problem e.g., arson, assassinations, suicides, rape, armed robbery, secret cults, political hooliganism and thuggery, ethnic/communal clashes, etc.
iv.    Assisting in planning so as to enable appropriate utilization of available resources.
v.    Evaluating measures put in place to combat the menace of drug abuse.
