Staying Sober After a Brain Injury


My daughter was in AA before she fell and injured her brain. She wants to stay sober, but now she forgets to go to her AA meetings. I'm worried about her and about what she might do when she's out with her old friends who drink. I don't think she has the awareness and judgment to make good choices when booze is around. What can I do to help her stay sober?
