My husband is addicted to alcohol and smoking. What treatment is recommended?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
First of all, treatment for alcohol addiction and smoking is a self-decision and self will. If he is willing to stop, then you can take help from de-addiction centers for medicines.
To reduce alcohol craving, I would suggest Acamprosate along with Etizolam for withdrawal symptoms. For smoking cessation, Buspirone can be helpful. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicines with their consent.
Again the only concern is that the person should be willing.
