I know that it makes you sad to see someone that you love hurting themselves in such a way as
drinking too much too often. The best place for you to contact is Al-Anon. There are offline and online
resources to get in touch with others who are feeling as you do.
You can best help your daughter by helping yourself & learning how to help her.
Here is the main website for Al-Anon : http://www.al-anon.alateen.org/
There is a lot of info there. It is for people who are friends or relatives of an alcoholic.
Here are a few online sites for support that you might want to check out and join.
