New Research Questions “Black And White” Thinking On Alcoholism.

NPR (3/23, Aubrey) reports in its “Shots” blog on new research that suggests that the “black and white” thinking that there are “alcoholics and everyone else” is being challenged. Dr. John Mariani, a Columbia University researcher, “says that the thinking has evolved, and that the field of psychiatry recognizes there’s a spectrum.” Furthermore, “the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism has a whole list of tips aimed at cutting down — everything from drinking tracker cards that you can keep in your wallet to help you track your drinking when you go out, to strategies for handling urges.”
