Get her to work the steps and recover from alcoholism. Sitting in meetings, reading, praying, service doesn't work for the real alcoholic described in the Big Book they need to get into action immediately to save their lives.

If you haven't worked the steps find someone who has quick for her and get her to change sponsors or else this is going to be another case of a sponsor sitting on their arse whilst consoling themselves that she was drinking anyway so no harm could have come whilst advising her to do nothing but sit on her arse, with a bunch of other people coming out the woodwork patting you on the back for the effort you have made with her.

Has your sponsor worked the steps?

If she won't work the steps and you have tried this route and explained it to get and shown how you have recovered then she isn't ready yet.
