Hi there...I can understand your concern. Your needs help. Both psychologically and medically. He will need to be started on deaddiction medications and counselled regarding further consequences of drinking alcohol. There will be some withdrawal side effects. He will have to come through that. Kindly consult a nearby psychiatrist at any hospital, they will help you. He might even require admission for a few days.
