BuSpar is another anti-anxiety medication that is not addictive.
I took it years ago, and it worked well for me.
why not start with something non-addictive first.
The others are quite right; xanax is very addictive and it does work on the same pleasure centers in the brain as alcohol. Not a good first choice for a rock bottom alcoholic!

Wish you well...
