Hypnotherapy does not stop drinking.
At best it is adjunctive therapy.
It can not replace the effectiveness of support groups, and no alcohol/addiction medicine doctor would recommend this.
In addition, hypnotherapy in general needs to be used as but one tool in psychotherapy.
To say that you can go get hypnotherapy to stop drinking would be incorrect.
You need a comprehensive program, which includes
Medical help with withdrawal if needed.
Correct diet and nutrition.
Optimally psychotherapy and this is where hypnotherapy can come in. The therapist should also have addiction training.
There are many "hypnotherapists" that have no medical training and this can be a dangerous approach for an alcohol addition. You need a trained individual and in almost all cases a multi factorial approach is needed.
