Our expert says:
He does deserve skillful therapy, preferably NOT wih someone who focusses only on adult durvivors of child abuse, as such people moften have their own onsessions and problems which they work out using their clients. He'd do best to see a good modern therapist such as one doing CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy )who could analyze the current problems and help him modify his maladaptive behaviours. Although obviously an outline of what happened would be relevant in planning how he NOT do what old-fashioned and ineffective therapists do, and which seems to be what he fears, in delving back in great detail, repeatedly, into the ugly events of the past.
Drugs and booze are a temptation for such a person, but will do nothing but harm
Hypnosis could be very harmful in such a person, and no competent genuine expert would recommend it in such a situation. But CBT and similar modern therapy could indeed be most helpful
