We have been standing on the sideline and painstakingly watching our brother’s health going down hill. It seems he is killing himself slowly w alchohol. He is very stubborn and thinks he can manage himself out of alcoholism. He does not want any help.
Has any one tried family intervention to get your loved one to want to seek help for their alchohol problem? How does it work out for you? I found this family intervention service online. What has ppl here heard about it? https://family-intervention.com/

Thank you for your response in advance.
