she is 22 years old and has cirrhosis of the liver all ready. i called some rehabs that are free and they will take her for 6 months and she wont go. and i called a hotline and they said to stop talking to her until she is ready to get help and she should come around and if she doesnt then you did all you could. so now she has like two months to live and she doesnt even care, she wont stop drinking she moved out of her moms house to move in with her ex boyfriend who hits her and who is 20 years older then her just so she can drink. then i get a call from her yesterday at 3 in the afternoon she isnt with him anymore she is living with some other guy she wouldnt tell me who. i told her that i really wish that i could have helped her before i moved and i am leaving in two weeks. she is going to die and im not going to be here. i just am so sad she really is a good friend i have known her for 5 years. i love her. what do i do???Answer Question

Her parents can go to a judge and have her involuntarily committed..and get the ball rolling that way.

You've done everything thing that you can do, the rest is up to her. If she won't get help, then you just have to let her go. I know it's a very hard thing to do, but if knowing she's going to die isn't enough motivation to get her to stop or get help, then it's her problem and not yours any more. All the "interventionists" say that an alcoholic or addict of any kind has to hit a bottom before they will get help and if knowing she's going to die isn't a bottom for her, then nothing will be. You just have to turn it over to a higher power and let her go. I'm sorry that you're going through this. It sounds like you're a good friend and have done all that you can do.
