where do I start to get help for my wife?

I don't know what to do. My wife has anxiety and depression. This week has been very difficult. She has been self medicating to excess with benzos and alcohol. She has missed work and been involved in some minor traffic accidents. I've taken her medicine from her tonight after she had been drinking all day. I have no idea of what I should do next. I've told her the depression will wane once the alcohol has worn off and she should not drink until we have figured out what to do.

I'm no doctor so my advice isn't professional. But I think mixing her medication with alcohol is going to cause a lot of other things to develop. Maybe you should take her in to talk to a professional they have all the skills and resources to better help her
