The FBI is a law enforcement agency and will investigate anyone whom they have reason to believe may be committing a Federal crime. That would include alcoholics and other substance abusers.

I suspect, however, that you probably have something more specific in mind when you asked your question. If you provide me with more details, I can add to my answer and make it less general.

Thank you for your prompt reply. I don't see anything in this scenario that would interest the FBI. If there is a warrant for your arrest because you left a treatment program, that would be a state and not a Federal issue.
