Where do I turn?
Posted by Victoria4 on 12 January 2015.
My brother is an alcoholic. He has admitted, on occasion, he has a problem. But never takes any steps to help himself. Up until recently he lived with my Mum. I had to move out because I couldn't handle the atmosphere in the house and I would constantly argue with him. I'm at a crucial stage in my career and couldn't handle being in the same environment as him. I feel unbelievably guilty for leaving my mum with it and she isn't coping well. Now that he's moved out he's causing her more distress than ever as she's constantly along his house attempting to help him. Just this morning she called me to tell me that he's drank two bottles of vodka and is in a state, she's asking me what she should do, I have no idea. Can anyone suggest any authorities that will not only support her but support my brother without him getting on touch with them himself?
