Alcoholic dad by

Hi everyone, My dad finally went into a and e after a a few weeks of a downward spiral and two seizures. He wouldn't accept help at first and it took a lot of persuasion (4 nurses and a mental health professional) to finally get him to hospital. He's been drinking every single night for the past 30+ years which I found 'normal' but now I look back I know it isn't. I also want to be there emotionally for my mum and sister who have had to put up with this for too long. I'm struggling because I don't know what steps to take next, is it my responsibility to help? Should I put myself first? Does he need to go to a rehab centre in order to give my mum and sister a break? Thanks
