Sadly all you can do is be there and listen to your SO. This is their family and they need to find a way to fix it on their own. Or atleast that has been my experience.

Your parents need to stay out of it, and to some degree, so do you – it’s painful to see someone’s downward spiral. But your intervention will likely just be seen as intrusiveness from her son’s girlfriend. The best that you can do is talk to your SO about your concerns; i.e., that not buying her alcohol will likely be doing her a favor, no matter how guilty she tries to make him feel. He can try suggesting other things – was she into any hobbies before? Can you get some hobby ideas from other women her age that you can pass along? Getting involved in something may help her find more productive ways to cope.
