I don't know what the law is in NC, but the last time an out-of-state alcoholic was in the habit of making harassing phone calls, etc. to a client of mine, we were able to persuade the local public rehab in his town to involuntarily commit the guy for several months. I would contact the state or county department of alcohol and drug programs in his locality and ask them if that is possible.

Why don't you just called Grandmoth and tell he what is going on? And second, why do you need to "hold" money in case of an emergency? Was it a gift of was it to be held for Grandmother. Is grandmother thinking of getting a divorce and asking you to hid assets for her?
