Many psychiatrists are trained in addiction medicines. It is better that you consult one of them.
First 1-2 weeks, focus will be on assessment or body health, motivational level, admission to hospital and treatment of withdrawal symptoms.
Then for next 9-12 months, he will be given anti-craving medicines and focus will be on prevention of lapses and relapses.
For Disulfiram, you need to take him into confidence and take his consent. Alcohol disulfiram interaction can be severe that needs instant treatment. It causes aversion to alcohol and he will be scared to drink alcohol. This needs to be done under the continued guidance by psychiatrist. It will be good for him if his motivational level is high.
