That poor kid. It's been evident for sometime that they're a very troubled family, with too many drinking parties. Joshua Serbin's alcohol levels must have been at critical levels for an ambulance to have been called."Extreme intoxication" is code for near death. Perhaps St. Mary's parishioners can donate to their legal and rehabilitation expenses. Thank God he wasn't driving.

Whomever was responsible for providing this child with intoxicants should have been charged and prosecuted. The boy could have lost his life. A full investigation needs to be conducted and if his parents enabled his drinking, they are culpable and warrant prosecution. Chemical Dependency is a primary disease, meaning that it is not just a symptom of some other underlying physical or emotional disorder. Instead, it causes many other disorders. A chemically dependent person may have a physical illness, disturbed family relationships, depression, unresolved grief issues and trouble at school or on the job. It cannot be treated effectively until the person stops using chemicals. The dependency must be treated first. Left untreated, it always gets worse.

This is a disconcerting pattern. Google: "Münchausen Syndrome by Proxy".
