Rehab program: In the USA, we have AA. Believe there are similar organizations in UK, and urge immediate affiliation. Continue your vitamins, especially thiamine 100 mg daily. The neuropathy and hallucinations may improve if nutrition and vitamins are adequate. You need close followup with a physician. Stay the course, and avoid the alcohol--it is tough, but worthwhile.
