We understand your concerns

Treatment steps for alcoholism may include:

Detoxification and withdrawal.
Learning skills and establishing a treatment plan
Psychological counseling
Oral medications (like disulfiram, Naltrexone (Revia), Acamprosate (Campral) etc)
Injected medication (like Vivitrol, a version of the drug naltrexone)
Continuing support
Treatment for psychological problems
Medical treatment for other conditions
Spiritual practice

Science has yet to develop a magic pill to cure alcoholism. Please avoid incomplete readings and fall pray. Knowledge is belief. But if you don't have required knowledge, you believe in your doctor who has the knowledge.

Wish you good future.
