Consult a deaddiction center. Medicines+counselling+techniques to avoid furthur impulse of drinking all should be done simultaneously. Psyciatrist is right person for deaddiction medications.

First and foremost you must understand quiting alcohol is a very gradual process. You should have strong determination and patience if you want to quit....and medications can't be prescribed just like that...de addition is a multi step procedure... you need to undergo counselling sessions to get motivated later on medications can be started... I would suggest you to consult nearest deaddiction center they will do the needful.
