Domestic violence poses unique problems in rural areas

Email

ALEXANDRIA -- If a woman or a man is in a domestic situation and lives in a small rural town, out in the country or in an area such as Douglas County, where do they go? Who can they turn to for help?

Would they run to a neighbor's house for help? Would they tell a co-worker? What about a friend?

Now what about if that woman or man lives in a metro area or a larger town? Are there more options or easier access to help?
