There is no specific treatment for most kinds of toxic or drug-induced hepatitis. Usually, discontinuing use of alcohol or the medication that is causing the liver damage or avoiding exposure to toxins is the first step. Many people fully recover from this type of hepatitis if exposure is restricted soon enough, although it may take months for the liver to heal. In severe cases, hospitalization may be required while the liver heals. Occasionally, there is lasting damage, such as cirrhosis and even liver failure. If the liver is irreversibly damaged, then a liver transplant may be an option.
