I refer to the causes. The groups all deal with the outcomes of violence.

Is there an overall cause? I spoke to somebody working in the Rape Crisis Centre and that person indicated that inevitably alcohol or drug abuse is involved in the majority of cases. Is that what the witnesses are finding? I do not know to whom that should be addressed specifically.
