In brief: Seek help.
Ask your family doctor for help with getting off alcohol.
In addition to helping you with symptoms of withdrawal ask your doctor to prescribe you Naltrexone 50-100mg/day. It can really help people stop drinking. Fda approved for same, and no it won't make you sick like anti-abuse. Then get behavioral care, aa etc.

In detox medications are used to avoid complicationss and keep you comfortable.
Once out of detox follow up with a addictionolgist or your family doctor is important there are medicines to help you stay sober, also attending meetings and intensive outpatient counseling are paramount. One day at a time.
