My wife has been suffering from depression for several years and the illness is getting considerably worst. She has started to drink in the afternoons and some days she will not get out of bed. Two weeks ago I called 911 and had her taken to Fairfax Hospital because she had consumed a large amount of vodka during the day and evening and she was talking about wanting to end her life. The hospital was able to get an emergency appointment with her doctor who increased her medication. The increase in medication stated to look like it was going to help,however over the last two days she has consumed over a fifth of vodka and last night I walked in on her trying to type a suicide note on her computer with about fifteen sleeping pills on the table next to her. I was able to calm her down and we finally went to bed. I don't know what to do. I want to get her help but the drugs alone are not doing it. She has an elderly mother that she has spent the last fifteen years of her life taking care of and it has worn her down so much that she now has a hard time going to visit her in the nursing home. When she does go and see her,she comes home even more depressed. I don't know if detox is what she needs or a better doctor or someone just to talk to. Could you please give me some advice as what I should be doing for her.

She ended therapy when I requested my file. She wouldn't send file until I filed a complaint with Office of Civil Rights. My file contains 120 pages of my recorded sessions for a year without knowledge of being recorded and no consent. See YouTube: "Illegal Ultimatum" to hear how she ended therapy with an ultimatum.
