Hi V.V. and welcome!
I am sorry to hear of you conflicting Dr's opinions.
It sounds as if you are genuinely worried about
your denpendency concerns...and that in itself is ususally indicative of not having an addiction problem.
I would suggest starting clean with a new doctor, and asking for a therapy referral.
After meeting with your therapist, let him/her make a recommendation for you...knowing your full background and history.
If you have not gone through a full program of CBT with a qualified therapist, then I would also inquire about
it. I can't tell you how much it has made a difference for many members her, myself included.
Even if you have done other therapy work before...a re-visit to doing a program can prove to be beneficial...you never know when something is going to 'click' and progress and healing really start to happen.
Keep posting with us if you find it helpful. We are here to understand and support.:)
