I agree that committing her won't help. However, she may manage to survive - Keith Richard is still around, as are the "toxic twins", Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith. People were saying the same thing about them 30 years ago.
I usually don't listen to music (though being around teens and twenty-somethings, I'm constantly exposed to it), but I find her quite talented, and hope she'll manage to get clean.
