Possible uses and use restrictions...

Funds may be used at the discretion of the States to achieve the statutory objectives, including the fulfillment of certain requirements. Not less than 20 percent of the funds shall be spent for programs for individuals who do not require treatment for substance abuse, but to educate and counsel such individuals and to provide for activities to reduce the risk of such abuse by the individuals by developing community-based strategies for prevention of such abuse, including the use of alcoholic beverages and tobacco products by individuals to whom it is unlawful to sell or distribute such beverages or products. States shall expend not less than 5 percent of the grant to increase (relative to fiscal year 1994) the availability of treatment services designed for pregnant women and women with dependent children (either by establishing new programs or expanding the capacity of existing programs). States shall also expend not less than 5 percent of the grant to increase (relative to fiscal year 1993) the availability of such services to pregnant women and women with dependent children. States must require programs of treatment for intravenous drug abuse to admit individuals into treatment within 14 days after making such a request or 120 days of such a request, if interim vices are made available within 48 hours. States will provide, directly or through arrangements with other public or nonprofit entities, tuberculosis services such as counseling, testing, treatment, and early intervention services for substance abusers at risk for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease. Other statutory requirements also apply.
