Thank you for your responses as it helps me to better understand your situation. Typically the best type of treatment for your alcohol issues would be the use of Dual Diagnosis Therapy. This type of individual therapy focuses on the addiction, but also the underlying causes for the alcohol use/abuse (e.g. depression, anxiety, stress
, etc...). This form of therapy has the best prognostic value because it will not just treat the symptom of the addiction, but will help you to develop better coping strategies to handle psychological stressors so that you will not have to rely on alcohol anymore. Here is a good website that you would want to look at to find a therapist near you and then after you enter your zip code, on the left-hand side you can select what treatment focus you want, like addiction.
This would be the first step to take and once you enter therapy/treatment you will be able to get on the right path to overcome this alcohol use disorder. The use of groups like AA or Al-Anon can also be added to your treatment plan, but these are only peer support groups and will not provide the same level of treatment as one on one therapy, so I still highly recommend the Dual Diagnosis Therapy. Based on what you described, I do not think you need any psychotropic medications to lessen the craving of alcohol, but it is an option as well for you.
I hope this gives you some guidance on what you need to do in order to overcome this alcohol use disorder. I wish you all the best and I hope you can overcome this addiction very soon.
