Substance abuse in rural versus urban areas
I know you must be busy so I'll get right to the point. I recently helped create this video about substance abuse in rural and urban areas.
I really respect the news and health topics discussed on Drug Addiction Support and wanted to share my video with you:
Here are some key takeaways from the video:
- 24% of rural residents use their primary substance of abuse every day.
- 43% of urban residents use their primary substance of abuse every day.
- Top cities for drug-related ER visits are Boston, NYC and Chicago.
If you want to help raise awareness about substance abuse by sharing this video in an article for Drug Addiction Support, just let me know! I'd by happy to promote your post on my social sites.
I look forward to hearing back from you soon!
P.S. Data and statistics come from the SAMHSA DAWN Report, the TEDS Report and
the National Survey on Drug Use and Health
