Brad :

Thank you for your question. have you considered doing an intervention for your son about his drinking? To do an intervention, gather all of his friends and family in one room and confront him on his drinking and how much of a problem it is for him. Prior to doing the intervention, please have resources available such as going to a 12-step group, Alcoholic Anonymous groups, or even residential substance abuse treatment program. Please let me know if you have any further questions.


That is worth a try - thanks.
