Our family is very new to dealing w alcholosim. We understand that only when one wants help, we can then get him help. 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/
Also, any recommendation of a treatment center in Southern California? How do you choose one? What do you find as an effective treatment center? We want to be ready when he decides to get help.
Thank you for your response in advance.

So I'm a new member, and I'm an alcoholic. A functioning alcoholic, but an alcoholic none the less. I decided I wanted to get help, and I'm now working on trying to get sober. I hope you can give me tips or something, I don't exactly know if I'll be able to stop just because I want to.
