How does the Scotch Whisky Industry help in prevention?

For many years The Scotch Whisky Association and individual whisky companies have sponsored research aimed at discovering why it is that there are those who seem unable to control their drinking. It also sponsors educational programmes based on such research and targeted at those thought to be most at risk of misusing alcohol, for example young people and drivers who drink as well as at doctors. nurses and social workers, because they are in the best position to help the problem drinker.
