Social and Cultural Aspects of Drinking Key findings. One of the problems facing those concerned with the development of policies and legislation on alcohol issues is the sheer volume of research and publications on this subject.

Abstract. Global society has failed to control a devastating flood of addiction to drug use and innumerable other habits. A century of scientific research has not produced a durable consensus on what addiction is, what causes it, and how it can be remedied.

Among problem drinkers, those whose drinking was identified as directly contributing to their hospitalization (e.g., injury incurred when intoxicated, alcoholic cirrhosis) had an even longer Cited by: The history of medicine shows how societies have changed in their approach to illness and disease from ancient times to the present.
