I'd personally say it's a bit of a generalisation.
Probably it's more an underlying personality trait that predates the alcoholism.
I know for my dad, it was fear of loss of control, having been over controlled by his own mother, which led him to be controlling in relationships over a period of some years when he was also severely emotionally ill, but untreated.
