TAP Series Resources

SAMHSA's Technical Assistance Publication 28: The National Rural Alcohol and Drug Abuse Network Awards for Excellence 2004: Submitted and Award-Winning Papers, is a resource that relates to rural issues. (See Rural Substance Abuse: Overcoming Barriers to Prevention and Treatment.)

“This Technical Assistance Publication (TAP) isn’t the first to address substance abuse treatment in rural areas,” said Ali Manwar, Ph.D., a social science analyst in the Division of State and Community Assistance at SAMHSA’s Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT). Several other publications in CSAT’s TAP series focus on substance abuse prevention and treatment in rural areas:

  • TAP 10: Rural Issues in Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Treatment

  • TAP 17: Treating Alcohol and Other Drug Abusers in Rural and Frontier Areas

  • TAP 20: Bringing Excellence to Substance Abuse Services in Rural and Frontier America

These TAPs are available for viewing through SAMHSA’s National Clearinghouse for Alcohol and Drug Information at http://ncadi.samhsa.gov.
