Our expert says:
At this age, it really is up to him, and only him, to embrace proper treatment for his alcoholism. HE has to take direct and sincere personal responsibility for what he is doing and for trying to put it right. YOU can't do this for him. He needs to see a good specialist in the field, perhaps at a good rehab clinic, or a psychiatrist specializing in substance abuse and alcoholism, for a full assessment and a discussion of treatment options. Neither antabuse nor the implants, nor anything else works without his full cooperation --- they can help him if he is sincerely trying to stop drinking and to stay stopped, but not otherwise.
Sad though it sounds, maybe an arrest for drunken driving would help him to have to face facts --- I'm more concerned about the risk of him killing or maiming someone else. Maybe someone should report him to the police for recurrent drunk driving, and he could usefully even lose his license.
No amount of worrying by you will help --- what is needed is a lot more worrying by him
