It sounds like you already are by being there and understanding as far as is possible. You could possibly get her the details of Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous (get details from large addiction/rehab centres in your area) and try to encourage her to go. You could also write her a letter explaining your feelings for her and what your concerns are so that she can return to this later if she chooses to. Other than that, there is little more you can do -if you become more involved/try to change her behaviour somehow you are only likely to alienate her and this will deprive her of a supportive environment when eventually her wheels fall off... Of course, it would also be understandable if you are finding this difficult and frustrating - remember that whilst you care, you are not responsible for her and there is only so much you can do. Sometimes people have to come to their own realisation, and sadly this is sometimes only when some damage has been done...
