I had an alcoholic friend whom I helped through tx, also tried desperately tried to help her get off the grog, so I feel for you.
It's difficult to organise them, as their brains are kind of scrambled.
I think what your doing is wonderful.
Do you think you can get him detoxed before tx, as it would be a good start to getting him clean & better chance of getting virus free.
I know it's hard, but him going into a clinic for detox is best.
It's heart breaking seeing how alcohol destroys some, just takes over their lives.
It takes a lot of pushing, a lot of patients and a lot of love to get them through .
Maybe the thought of the HCV will knock him into to trying to get clean.
Thank goodness my friend is finally hep free AND alcohol free now
Hopefully your friend will also get this way.
Good luck & hugs from me
