Problem Drinking: Trends Among Rural Veterans–A National Study


This study will use national data to measure recent trends in problem drinking among VA-eligible adults in rural and urban locations and couple these data with the locations of VA services and substance abuse treatment facilities to identify rural locations where alcohol treatment services are limited. This project is funded by the Veterans Administration Office of Rural Health, through a contract with the northwest Portland, Oregon, Veterans Affairs Medical Center.
