In brief: Go to ER

A person can die from too much alcohol.
Such a situation should be treated in an emergency department as quickly as possible. Any delay could prove disastrous. Call 911.

In brief: Depends how severe

If one is unconscious, or having difficulty breathing or seizures then obviously hospitalization is necessary.
If one is very sick from too much alcohol, but sick enough for hospital, then hydration is the best treatment. Questions about alcohol poisoning suggest you, or someone you know, may have issues with excessive alcohol consumption. If so, please see your doctor.
