My father is addicted to xanax really bad, he took his entire prescription in 4 days which is 90 pills, he almost got in a car wreck today with a parked car, and the police had to bring him home. He turned from a warm caring individual into a shell of what he used to be. I don't know what to do, my mother just cries all day and all night, my sister doesn't care, and he told me he will never go into treatment and never stop taking the pills. I'm 20 years old and i got school 5 hours a day and work a full time job, i can't administer the pills myself. I don't know what to do, someone give me some insight.

P.S. I took away his car keys.

There are a lot of threads going right now about Xanax. Check them out. I am sure he will either get his car keys back from you or have another set made... one thing that is for sure, he is not going to take action to get off these drugs unless he wants to.
