ATTITUDES REGARDING ALCOHOLISM AMONG A GROUP OF DRINKING DRIVERS

Ninety-four drinking drivers were surveyed to assess their attitudes on nine factors related to alcoholism and the alcoholic. Each of the factors was assessed according to Marcus' criterion. Two factors were extracted which differed from those of the general population norm group. These drinking drivers were positive in their belief that periodic excessive drinkers can be alcoholics and negative in their attitude regarding alcoholism as an illiness. It was noted that apart from these two factors, these drinking drivers were equally ambivalent in their attitudes toward alcoholism and the alcoholic when compared to the norm group. /Author/
