Hello,
Chronic alcoholism can cause alcoholic liver disease which includes fatty liver, alcoholic hepatitis and alcoholic cirrhosis. These are all serious conditions and the person suffering from these should avoid alcohol intake. Regarding the treatment taken it is best to have a frank discussion with his attending doctor and get your doubts clarified. Keep me posted.
Take care and regards!
