Wow, so sad but true. The active alcoholic addict causes so much destruction.
Truth is, even if they get help at this point, after decades if selfish self-destructive substance abuse, the parent should not feel obligated to give financial assistance, because the addict/alcoholic has made their own mess. The reality is that we as families are not required to clean up the wreckage that has been whirling for years and years. These are the harsh, self-imposed consequences.
