Have you talked to other families going thru the same thing with their loved one in AA ? I understand from friends that Al-non works. (Al-non dot org)
In any case, I hope you have a friend or family member to talk and be able to stay a day or two. It just sounds like your husband is trying to keep the addiction away with so many meetings per day and being numb to avoid thinking. My sister went to meetings every day for 6 months. It is time for you to take care of yourself so you can support the family. Contact Al-anon ASAP. You are in my prayers.
