As noted, everclear is a form of alcohol. Like the good 'ol beer, wine, and spirits, it too can become habit forming. Even if you're drinking it with OJ, and in less quantity than a more mainstream spirit, it can be habit forming. The treatment is clinical, psychological, and physiological in nature, just as in any alcohol treatment program. However, in my humble experience, those who dabble with everclear also dabble with other pharmacologicals, including illegal substances (not always, but often). The treatment is far more difficult and less successful when there is a combination of alcohol and drugs.
