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

(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.
