Our expert says:
I do not think it is ever too late, but the problem is, one cant just give him tablets and leave him to his own devices, this wont work - the best would be for him to go to rehab, where there is supervision, or to do this with the guidance of a doctor. There are doctors (psychiatrists and GP's) who specialize in alcohol addiction and the treatment and I think you should try and take him to one of these doctors. One will also have to consider the safety of your mother. This must be terrible for you to witness. Please try and find a doctor who specializes in alcohol addiction, because there is help available. Good luck.
