Have had the same issue of installing a new battery AND a new alternator TWICE and still battery is draining. So the last answer of possibly replacing the alternator is not the issue.

Well surely its not the alternator, but are you leaving something on inside your car? Headlamps, inside lights.. etc? Might be a bad relay, or the starter is sucking up too much power from the battery.
