Your mother is probably suffering from, in simpler terms, addiction. She needs to be evaluated for the same and would need treatment for deaddiction and maintainance therapy. Also an underlying condition like depression may need assessment and appropriate treatment, which maybe addressed simultaneously or after deaddiction. There are various treatment options, so that if one fails others can be tried. The drugs you mentioned may lead to overdose and other complications and as such it would be recommended that the patient be evaluated by a psychiatrist at the earliest.
