I have over 2and a half years recovery from alcohol and substance abuse but have returned to bulemia with a vegence and cant stop. I strongly fear the next step is alcohol and drugs or suicide. Help me.

I am sorry that you are having difficulties. The Social Security Administration does not have a short term disability benefit. The benefits that are available are for individuals that can't work due to a health condition and who's health condition has lasted 12 months, is expected to last at least 12 months, or may result in death. I suggest that you consult with a Social Security Disability attorney for further guidance.

I wish you the best.

There is no short term social security plan. There are numerous available treatment centers and things that you can check yourself into to help with eating disorders and substance abuse. I suggest checking yourself into one and going through treatment.
