Cindy, my 22 year old son Morgan is drinking alcohol so often that his work and relationships are suffering. Last week he missed 3 out of 5 days of work due to drinking. As well, he drinks a lot in his room, often refusing to socialize or take phone calls. What can I do to help my son before his drinking escalates further?

Cindy writes:
To be honest, I have quite a bit of experience with this very situation. First, an intervention should be staged immediately. Subsequently, Morgan should undergo detox and then enter a 28 day inpatient treatment program. Lastly, Susan it’s not too late. In fact, applaud yourself for reaching out on behalf of Morgan.

    Alabama Criminally Prosecutes Addicted Mothers

    Alabama's chemical endangerment law was originally intended to protect children from meth labs. The law prohibits any "responsible person" from "exposing a child to an environment in which he or she knowingly, recklessly, and intentionally causes or permits a child to be exposed to, ingest or inhale, or have contact with a controlled substance, chemical substance, or paraphernalia." After the law was passed, law enforcement extended the law to also protect unborn children in the womb. In Alabama, mothers who test positive for drugs are often immediately thrown in jail. /p>
