An estimated 14 million Americans are alcoholics. Many have recovered and rebuilt their lives with the help and support of family, friends, and 12-step or other types of programs. But treatment advocates, recovered alcoholics, and law enforcement professionals say that alcoholism isn’t just an individual crisis, nor even a family crisis, but a societal crisis. A panel talks about the place of alcohol in American culture and society.

Guests

  • Dr. Morris Chafetz president of the Health Education Foundation and former director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism
  • Mathea Falco Drug Strategies
  • Stacia Murphy president of the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence; in recovery from alcoholism since 1976
