      how do you help a late stage alcoholic?

      Sadly, it sounds like she doesn't want to quit drinking.

      I don't think any program, drugs or Anything can help if you don't want to quit...

      Frances, I agree with Savon 19. Sounds as if there is alot of enabling going on here (I mean that in the kindest way) Allow her to reach her own rock bottom, she has been in treatment and she knows deep down she cannot drink again. I recommend that you get your friend to go to Al Anon, she/he will get all the help and support necessary to deal with the mothers drinking. Your friend needs a life of her/his own right now and has done the best he/she can do. When the mother sees that no one is minding her she may get scared into minding herself..... changed behaviour towards the addicted is very important when dealing with addiction.

      how do you help a late stage alcoholic?

      He was drinking every day now, and most of the day. His wife threatened to leave him if he didn't quit drinking or get help. Finally, she filed for divorce. Everything fell apart after that. He lost his job and most of his friends. He had recurring thoughts of suicide, but they only intensified his drinking. His wife got the house, and he spent his last months in a cheap rooming house. One evening after drinking a quart of whiskey, Jack passed out with a lighted cigarette in his hand. He died in the fire.
