The best way would be to get her to go voluntary to another GP or Psychiatrist for a second opinion to maybe relook her medication and gradually get her off the unnecessary drugs. Maybe the current treating doctor is not aware that she is misusing the drugs or getting repeated fills - I think you should discuss this with him/her and make him aware of this.
To force her to be admitted you will have to apply to a magistrate for an order that the person be detained at a mental institution. She needs a medical certificate from 2 medical practitioners to certify that she must be admitted against her will - do not go this way if you can help it.
