Red face How can I help - Xanax Adiction

My new boyfriend of 4 months recently told me that his Mom was in an inpatient center for xanax addiction. I have some knowledge of addiction, and the recovery process because I work for social services and deal with addiction and recovery with my clients all the time. However, I don't know how to be supportive of him and his family. His Mom, has been at this center for almost a year, and he rarely talks about it. She is coming home after Christmas. I don't know how to be supportive with out oversteping my bounds. I think he thinks his Mom is just going to come home and she is going to be healed, I was trying to tell him that she is going to need a lot of support and and that his family should look into going to some type of family counceling or some type of support group to learn about what she is going to be going through. How can I suggest this with out oversteping my bounds... What types of support groups are out there for depression medication addiction if any? Please help fill me in so that I can better understand xanax addiction and possibly pass that info on to him and his family.
