Free of is the correct idiom so both need to have it - that leaves us with B and E.

both...and also seems more redundant than both...and...as well.

I'll go with E

I believe A. Both doesn't go neither with also nor with as well.

That is what I too thought. But my answer was wrong. Hence posted here and wanted some alternate explanations.

I guess stepanita's explanation makes sense

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

(E) both of drug dependency and of prejudicial treatment as well.

If it's A then recovering heroin addicts seek
1. to be free of drug dependence (X)
2. others' prejudicial treatment (Y)

the 'of' in choice E links both X & Y it back to 'FREE'.

So, the 'of' do not apply to both the caluses that are seperated by a conjunction.
