In brief: Benzodiazepines
For many years there has been concern about withdrawal seizures in patients that abuse alcohol.
The classic treatment has always been a benzodiazepine. Many forms are available including klonopin, (clonazepam) ativan, valium, etc. You can discuss this with your physician. These can be used for a period of time during withdrawal, then gradually weaned off over time.
