How old is your son? Does he live with you?

Expert:  frantzgregory replied 10 months ago.

If you son is an adult and he is not responding to anybody, there is little else you can do but to be there for him and continue to encourage him to speak to you and that you are always available should he need to talk. It will be challenging to stop him from drinking alcohol.
