Hi shybhan37, welcome. In addition to her recovery group, is she getting one-on-one counseling? If not, that might be something to think about having her look into. A good therapist should be able to help her learn ways to productively deal with her emotions instead of taking it out on others.

Is she working or going to school? Because she is under your roof, think about setting boundaries. Such as if she has nothing nice to say to her brother to leave him alone; assign her household chores she has to do, etc. May I ask how old she is?

Have you thought about going to Alanon? Although she currently isn't in active addiction, you need support and you may be able to get that and advice from others who have or currently are in your situation. Link to Alanon:

Please let us know how you are doing. Feel free to vent, it can be very helpful.
