Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hello- Thank you for asking the question. I have over 30 years of experience working with individuals, couples and families & am happy to reply.
I am sorry to hear about this problem with your grandson. Alcoholism is devastating.
If you believe that your grandson is in imminent danger to himself or others- in every county in the U.S. there are procedures that you can initiate through the Mental Health Center and the Courts to secure involuntary evaluation.
If you respond below- with your County and State- I will be happy to help you with who to contact to initiate this process.
In the meantime, as hard as it may be, the only way your are going to help your grandson is to STOP enabling him. This means cutting him off from everything accept emotional support toward getting help for his problem.
The attached link explains this in detail.
Again- if you wish- send me the county and state in which you live and I will be happy to define local resources to help you.
Please Leave Positive Rating so that I receive credit for my time
