I agree with Purple. Apparently your dad has never been a nice person, and is selfish and expects far too much from other people without feeling a need to give in return. Make it entirely clear to him before you stop comunicating with him, that it has been and is HIS job to look after himself, and you are NOT going to look after him. If he can't be bothered to pay his rent, then he must face the consequences.
Refuse to ever see him or speak to him unless he is utterly sober and is no just wanting to persuade you to do things for him. Do NOT allow him to stay with you, or to boss you or your family around at all. As he has been unable to care for himself, he has no authority whatever to boss anyone else around.
if he chooses to be an unpleasant drug, he must accept the effects that choice has on his life.
You are not being evil in the slightest by leaving him now to live or die on his own - he made this bed, and now he must lie on it. You owe him nothing, and certainly you don't owe it to him to allow him to damage your life and that of your family.
