CONTROLLED DRINKING: Drunk Driving Case Reignites Abstinence vs. Moderation Debate
Last March, Audrey Kishline, roaring drunk, drove down the wrong side of an interstate highway and killed two people. Her guilty plea last week to two counts of vehicular homicide has focused the spotlight on the group she formed, "Moderation Management," and the claims she and her supporters have made that problem drinkers can be taught to drink in moderation and need not forswear drinking entirely, as AA teaches. California Healthline's Jeff Stryker takes a look at the history of the "controlled drinking" controversy.
