is it a good idea for them not to take medication once they leave the detox?

my partner was on anxiety meds in detox, shes now at a different facility and decided not to take them anymore. she says she wants to be completely sober. and feel everything. but that scares me because she drinks to deal with her anxiety and feelings.
Olivia K Rely on her therapist and psychiatrist for what they feel will give her the best chances of staying sober. Very often people in early recovery want to dictate what is best for them, but an important part of the process is trusting professional recommendations.
