Legal Question in Family Law in Texas

My ex had my children for visitation and allowed or failed to prevent my children from drinking. The children are 17 and 15 and the 15 year old has medical issues for which she takes medication. My ex was intoxicated as well as my children and my ex got on a motorbike with my 17 year old and wrecked into a fire hydrant. They were taken to the hospital were my ex was transported to another hospital for emergency surgery and my son stayed at the original hospital by himself. I have spoken with law enforcement and was told there was nothing I could do about this situation. I was told that Texas law says you can give your minor child alcohol and because my son is 17 there is no child endangerment. I do not have the money or means of getting the money to obtain an attorney, is there any way to save and protect my children without putting myself in contempt of the court order for refusing vistation unless supervised for their safety?
