I am sorry about your daughter.

many with bad anxiety symptoms use alcohol to self treat their anxiety symptoms.

she needs to see a doctor or psychiatrist who can help taper down off of her alcohol and start to treat her anxiety symptoms with medications like sertraline or paroxetine and diazepam and klonazepam to better treat her anxiety symptoms so she doesn't have to continue to drink alcohol.
