yes, but you must know what you put in, how many gallons, etc.
Camden and Sorbate work by preventing yeast reproduction, which means the current yeast will go until they run out of life, so your ABV could keep going (what are your starting and current gravity readings?) 19% abv, would mean around 140 points of sugar shift.
Anyhow you can try and slow this all down buy cold crashing, racking - to reduce amount of yeast, although the live is more likely in suspension - and then adding Camden. But really it is hard to stop a fermentation short of heating/pasturizing. And that can give your product a 'cooked' flavor that maybe good, or will just be 'off'.
