North Hastings Alcohol Clinic: A Rural Developmental Project Based on Local Coordination and A.R.F. Consultation.
Morgan, Don
This study reports on a rural developmental project based on local coordination and Addiction Research Foundation (A.R.F.) community consultation. The purpose of the project is to develop addiction services and general community awareness in a small, northern, rural setting in Hastings County, Canada. The effect of the effort has been the development of an alcohol clinic and an alcoholism education program based completely in the community. The methods used are community consultation on a monthly visitation basis by the A.R.F. consultant. The Clinic and educational efforts have been the result of a coordinated effort between three local agencies and the A.R.F. consultant. The project has been in effect 12 months and is beginning to have some influence on the village and surrounding area. Most importantly, the consultation model is a training model which is ongoing and leaves the community with local professionals skilled in dealing with persons who are addicted to alcohol. The project will continue for a 12-month period and will emphasize professional training for those involved in staffing the Clinic. (Author)
