Unfortunately no: When you say liver disease do you mean cirrhosis? Cirrhosis does not get better. Do you mean fatty liver? That can improve over time if the alcohol use stops and people get back to a normal weight. Hope this helps.

It depends on stage : First of all it can be reversed in earlier stages before full blown cirrhosis has set in, as that is irreversible
but no medicine will work unless you stop alcohol intake completely and for good.
