My problem w alcohol has been continuous for over ten years. I have been to an inpatient detox, outpatient treatment, and I've been to AA meetings. I have not had a drink in two days, and am having all the classic detox symptoms. I have been trying to find out about any supplements, vitamins, herbs that could be helpful. I am drinking plenty of water, trying to eat healthy and all that. Any info would be appreciated.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Supportive measures, continuous AA meetings and avoiding alcoholic gatherings and trigger and stressors help. Let your psychotherapist and addiction expert helps.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
