This is Dr. David
I am sorry you are having issues with alcohol.
I am glad you are willing to look .
treatment dependence need to take many sides.
you need to see a doctor and talk about medications such as disulfiram which can help
you also need to seek social support like with an alcoholics anonymous support group to help.
also seeing a therapist or psychotherapist can help as well.
let me know if you have questions.
I have a different answer.
Disulfuram is not indicated until you are off alcohol completely.
Otherwise it would make you deathly ill.
It is not the best drug either and there are other choices after your doctor guides you through the acute phase, which involves different medications, as well as, in some cases, a hospital stay.
A program needs to be set up, with careful planning.
This program must be tailored to you and there is no one size fits all.
Your doctor should refer you to an alcohol rehabilitation counselor or therapist, or an addiction specialist.
That way, a more optimal program, more likely to work, can be designed.
There are multiple 12 step programs, not just AA, including rational recovery programs.
Alcohol addiction therapist should be the first you approach, not simply the average psychologist or psychotherapist.
Nutritional aspects will need to be addressed.
