Most states have some kind of law where if a person is suspected to be mentally ill and a danger to themself or others, then the person can be picked up and evaluated without their permission. In Florida we have the Baker act. I don’t know about the laws in other states, but you can look it up.
Here is a link to an advocacy group that may have some pointers.
Another option would be to convince your mom to move out to a smaller, more affordable home where no one else can fit.
That’s about all I can think of.

Alcohol and borderline? Sounds like my ex-wife. As long as the bottle is around, there is nothing you can do. Professional help is required. And if she won't stay away from the booze, you gotta at least get her out of the house, and preferably into a clinic. With the drinking, she is not helping you, your fiancée, your future together, your mom, or herself.

Yes, it is the most difficult and frustrating personality disorder to try to deal with, for professionals & friends and family. You have to remember never to take anything personally when interacting with them. They require a seemingly infinite amount of patience, tolerance, and understanding.
They will wear you out if everyone else is not aligned/on the same page. They’re experts at “dividing & conquering.”
I wish you well & good luck.
