  Professional women and alcohol abuse 30 Mar 2006  
Leonora Kawecki, a successful corporate lawyer, died because of alcohol use at the age of just 39. Her sister Julia took time off work to raise money for a new kind of treatment centre whereby professional people get short term in-house help without having to give up work or even tell their employers. The aim is to help people before their alcohol problems spiral out of control. 
Jenni is joined by Julia Kawecki and Moira Plant, Professor of Alcohol Studies at the University of the West of England.
