Symposium on Rural/Urban Continuum. Lexington, KY, USA, 1996/10.
This article presents recommendations developed by a group of United States drug-use (r) researchers interested in rural and urban research and practice who met in Lexington, Kentucky, in October 1996.
Overall, there was consensus about the importance of better understanding the urban/rural drug and alcohol use/dependency continuum.
It was emphasized that drug and alcohol use/dependency are chronic and relapsing disorders.
Definitions of rural and urban are most important, and different definitions may be associated with factors that are masked by population density.
Specific recommendations are presented in the following areas :
Treatment and Other Services,
Service Providers, and Managed Care.
