For most reasons to undergo adjunctive hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you should probably not be drinking any beverage that could be toxic to your system.

In brief: Yes
But, if you have high blood pressure it is not advised.
Also, if you are being treated for decompression sickness it is not advised to imbibe alcohol, as it will dehydrate you further.
