Keep at it, Kasandra, you can do it. YOu've done it before, so you can be sure you can do it. Congratulations on making such a sound decision. Unless you were drinking prodigious amounts, there's probably no actual detoxification needed ; but as one tends to eat less well and wisely while drinking, and because alcohol can interfere with the absorption and storage of vitamins, its generally wise to take normal, good dose vitamin supplements, with the basic required vitamins ( most of the other iddly bits in multivite supplements are only put in there to try to justify the outrageous prices charged for these cheap chemicals ).
Any combination of alcohol with anxiety pills or other sedative meds, would indeed be likely to make you feel weird. And just watch your progress. Again, much depends on how much you were drinking. Some people can stop smoothly ; but if you were taking high amounts every day, your brain may protest at the sudden unaccustomed absence of the booze, and give one shakes, irritability, etc, even DTs, so in such a case one might need an inpatient admission for a few days to be more sedated while the alcohol goes, and then to cut back the sedation itself.
Good luck, and keep us posted !
