Henderson, Sheila (1998) Drugs prevention in rural areas: an evaluation report: final report to the Home Office Drugs Prevention Initiative. London: Home Office.

This review of research indicated that drugs were widely available in rural areas but that there were no reliable data by which to compare rural and urban drug misuse. Rural drug availability had increased, the extent and nature of misuse varied from area to area, and the most commonly misused drug was cannabis. The report makes a number of good practice recommendations, suggesting that interventions were more likely to succeed if they took a broad-based approach, setting drugs issues within a wider social and family context.
