Your friend does not have to worry. Hepatitis caused by alcohol abuse is not contagious. It is damage done to your liver by alcohol abuse. It is in a way similar to people who end up with cognitive problems from years of abusing drugs. You damage your own body, but not your partner's. Here is a link that sort of explains it: http://www.empowher.com/condition/drug-induced-hepatitis/causes.

I hope that helps. Thank you for visiting the site. If we can help you further, please let us know.
