A recent survey report published by Salvation Army on Monday, subjected that over four million Australians are aware of the families, who might not be bringing up their children well and providing them with proper care, as a result of alcohol misuse.
The findings in the survey highlighted that since the past one year, problem drinking has been linked with disturbances in over millions of families.
This week has been set as the Alcohol Awareness Week, which has been marked with the release of these findings.
Clinical Director with Drug and Alcohol Recovery Services, Gerard Byrne, said "While alcohol related violence in the public domain has been given a lot of publicity of late, it's important to also look at what's happening behind closed doors".
With findings suggesting a rise in alcohol violence by 25% in regional areas, Byrne warned that people residing in the regional Australia have been the ones, which have suffered the most, due to financial crisis, job loss, as a result of which they try to cope up with alcohol.
Byrne further asserted that they wanted the people to discuss the issue of alcohol abuse with their family members; they should sit together and acknowledge as to how the problem is laying an adverse impact on their family life
