Telling her that you cannot be her friend if she 1) doesn't take care of herself and 2) does something that could hurt her or others in the long-run AND telling her you will tell her family when you see things going south is not stabbing her in the back, but is setting boundaries.

It is sounding to me like you are trying to help her, but may be a bit co-dependent. Why would you want to be friends with someone you can't trust to do the right thing for herself and others?
