Yes, my Pancreas is having a mild problem at the current time and I would like to avoid a hospital visit. How can I help rectify the situation at home? I have no duct blockage, it was due to an over indulgence in an alcoholic drink 3 days ago.

Hello and thanks for the query.
You are probably suffering from the symptoms of alcoholic acute pancreatitis.
Home care for pancreatitis includes:
Do not drink alcohol.
Avoid caffeine. 
Drink plenty of liquids.
Eat a low fat diet.
Acetaminophen,ibuprofen etc for pain and inflammation
Take Acute Pancreatitis Liquid Diet
There are two main types of liquid diets that may be used to treat pancreatitis:
Clear Liquids
Full Liquids:
Started after a person tolerates clear liquids for 24 hours without vomiting

Clear Liquid Diet
Clear liquids are liquids you can see through. Clear liquids are easily absorbed by the intestines, which reduces stress on the intestines. Clear liquids may contain some nutrition, but are inadequate to support the body's energy needs for more than a few days.

Clear liquids include:
Fruit juices without pulp
Soft drinks
Sports drinks:

Full Liquid Diet
Someone who is tolerating clear liquids, but cannot tolerate solid food, may tolerate a full liquid diet. A full liquid diet can safely sustain the body for long periods of time.

Full liquids include:
Cream of wheat
Fruit juices
Milk, milkshakes and ice cream
Nutrition supplement drinks, such as Ensure or Boost
Pureed vegetables
Soups without solids
Vegetable juices
Yogurt and pudding
I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any other query.
Thanks and best of luck.
