Our 24 year old son has anxiety and is in recovery for alcoholism (self-medicating). He lives in another town. We financially support him but our ability to continue is fading. He is on medication but refuses or is unable to get started on cognitive therapy. If it was just his addiction, we would be "co-dependents" and advised to tell him we will no longer support him financially unless he is in treatment. But this is a mental illness. How much support should we give? Is it helpful or harmful? What impact on him if we tell him he has to move home for financial reason? Do we candidly lay out our concerns knowing that compounds his anxiety? Thanks.
