I think that the Borg wouldn't need to "cure" the dependency so much as just provide their bodies with the right nutrients.
DS9 has shown that Ketracel White addiction has been impossible to remove even through genetic manipulation, so the only reasoning I can think of Jem'Hadar Borg don't just drop dead after a couple of weeks is that the borg assimilated someone who knows how to make it, and they keep the nanites producing it since obviously, Jem'Hadar drones are all kinds of bad ****in ass.
