My Nieces drinking

Hi,
Just wondering if there are any suggestions to help my niece to stop drinking? She just finished with treatment and was doing so good, and went to a wedding and started drinking again. She was trying so hard, now we think she has been hiding her drinking for a while and we were not aware of it. She is 24 years old and has had this problem since her teens. We really thought with her classes and treatment she was on the road to recovery, but now we feel like she is starting all over again. She has had trouble with the law due to her drinking and is awaiting her court date. We thought it really scared her, but we find it did for awhile but now it seems like that is not the case. Should we call her counselor,to let her know she has been lying to her also, saying she is not drinking. We are so afraid for her and she is pushing us away. Any suggestions to help her , we will appreciate.
Thanks

Re: My Nieces drinking

Sorry to say this but noone can help her but HER.
Maybe she has to hit rock bottom until she realizes she needs to quit.
