In brief: DEPENDS

First, find the cause! cirrhosis of the liver means scarring, and can be caused by many things.
Treatment varies bc of this. Infections, usually viral, like hepatitis b and c can do it, as can some metabolic disorders that can be inherited. Toxins are also a common reason, and usually this is from alcohol. Most of all, prevent any further damage, since it is not reversible.
