In brief: Abstain from alcohol

If there is danger of a suicide, call 911 or get to an ER immediately.
Many people self medicate with alcohol for anxiety and/or depression. There are many more effective treatments without the dangers of binge drinking (such as worsening sx). Outpatient counseling sounds as if it has been inadequate for you. Consider more intensive treatment such as partial hospitalization or inpatient care.
