Thank you

Thank you all for your support.

My daughter has a problem with alcohol, and will not admit it to herself. She claims she has it under control. She doesn't.

This is her third arrest for DUI. It will not go well for her. She WILL have to spend time in jail, she WILL have her license likely revoked.

I love her to death, but my heart can't take much more of this...

I'm glad she was found.  Hopefully this will help her to break the alcohol habit.  I'll continue to pray for the  situation of course.  I lived with someone who had an alcohol problem, and I know how very frustrating and painful it can be to deal with.

They need a PSA like this for alcohol abuse:

I'm glad she is safe at least! A lot worse could have certainly happened, so know that at least! I hope she can break the habit!

Remember to not be an enabler.
My mother helped my aunt not get arrested for child neglect by looking after her 4 and 2 year old.  Aunt called the cops on her for taking the kids, and she lied for aunt saying that she was under heavy medication and sleep walking.  20 something years later, the two kids are REALLY messed up, one now being an alcoholic, the other trying to kill himself in drag racing, and the aunt is still composed of more alcohol than blood.

More often than not, people have to hit the bottom before they stand up on their own.  Don't protect those who should know better, they have to learn that the consequences of their actions don't just happen to other people.

I have no problem letting her solve her own problems. I *do* have a problem getting my wife to do so.

Sometimes, all the love and concern that you can give is no match for the kick in the ass the real world will give. ... Something tells me this time it's not going to be easy on her, and she's going to feel the repercussions for a long time. The question for me is still, is this a genetic/biological dependency thing, or just a psychological one? Can be either or both. Not sure of your family's history but if it has a biological link it usually shows up with other family members. ... But in any case, she's safe, and unharmed, relatively speaking. If your wife is the softie, incidentally... this time she may be unable to be the softie.

I think it is, even though alcoholism does not run in our family.
