This article aims to explain how the drug phenomenon with all its developments that occur in Indonesia, threats that arise against security, its impact and how efforts in overcoming it. The article is based on the results of a national survey of the city index for responding to drug threats in 173 districts and cities that have BNN representatives. Through quantitative methods with statistical calculations Index Kota Tanggap Ancaman Narkoba was divided into two categories of analysis units: family analysis unit and non-family analysis unit. The Index value obtained was transformed into categories that represent the level of responsiveness to the threat of narcotics. The results of the majority of regions in Indonesia are still not good responsiveness to the threat of drugs. Index values for all variables (family, institutional, territorial, community and legal resilience) are still below 40, except for family resilience at 64.84. These values also serve as indicators for developing integral policies so that prevention and abuse of drugs can be carried out.
