For anxiety and agitation, extended-release morphine, methadone, hydromorphone, or oxymorphone are all likely superior choices. I do not know what the doctor is willing to prescribe. Buprenorphine also may help--you never know.

Have you tried diazepam 2.5-10mg bid-qid (or other benzodiazepines) along with the opioid? Dextroamphetamine 10-30mg bid-tid? I am being completely serious here; if someone is suffering that badly, forget the classical prejudices toward using these drugs together.

The anxiolytic meprobamate occasionally can produce superior results in some people yet is still schedule IV so you don't have to bother making the case for barbiturates. It seems that making a case against a murder suspect is easier than that these days. However, if you are truly trying to recreate the effect of alcohol, barbiturates are the way to go. Pentobarbital or amobarbital are the drugs of choice here; if sedation is a problem add a psychostimulant or modafinil.
