Yeah right , it will never happen to your kid. I left for college ( to one of the strict schools in the nation) and a became a full blown alcoholic. I really was never told not to take that first drink. Parents I plead with you take the time to talk to your children. These days the drug and alcohol talk should be as standard as the birds and the bees.

You want a court order. You can not unilaterally chnage the rights of a parent in any state. Yet, you have a good case! You can get a court order that forces him to go to rehab before any visitations or to settle for supervised visitations. It is not a bad thing to do since situations like this can quickly get out of hand. (just read the news). Head down to the court house in your jurisdiction and visit the self help window. Talk to somebody there. If you got a little cash a family lawyer will be able to handle this for you. Maybe even get an IDO (Income Deduction Order) which will suck money out of his pay check to pay for child support. This protects you when he decides to not pay child support b/c you won’t let him visit (something he can’t do either). Good luck.
