I got the impression Mike is in a strong place and his main concerns are out of empathy for how his news will affect others. As Keith implied, it's possible that some of the alcoholism in this family may be caused by repressing secrets. Who knows what experiences others may have had or what healing might ultimately ensue? Another concern for me is that someone who would do this to a kid as a teenager has the possibility of developing some darker desires, and revealing the abuse could end up being protection for other children.
