B.
of drug...of prejudicial
'also' after 'and' conveys the meaning of 'as well'

I choose A.

The correct idiom is "both x and y". In choices B, C, D , E also, as well is redundant in presence of both.

The only question is about parallelism:

Most recovering heroin addicts seek to be free of drug dependency and (of) others' prejudicial treatment as well.

Is the second of understood?

I like choice A for the same reasons as Gluon. The "as well" at the end of choice E is not needed and makes the sentence redundant.

I remember seeing this question before... at first I picked A, because I didn't think as well was idiomatic.

It is.

So E.
