PREVENTING ALCOHOLISM - Treating those already ill from the disease of
alcoholism will never solve this rapidly growing health problem. As the U.S. population increases so does the size

towards preventing the inception of the ilness before it ever begins, workers in the filed of alcoholism are fighting a
losing battle. "Preventing Alcoholism" has been written for the layman, the parent, the teacher and all concerned with
learning the true nature of this complex disease and the warning signs of its onset. This Smithers Foundation pamphlet
has been written for all ages, childhood to old age.
