    The vast majority of alcoholics and drug addicts are Christians in this country.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Of course there are. Christians aren't infallible.

    But you are the one that stated that "When you've lost your soul to addiction, who better to return it to you than God?" This is certainly implying that a cure for alcoholism is dependent of the belief of god.

    Then you missed this one:

    "Then don't think of it as God. Think of it as the 'power of the universe', "the force within you", "the matrix" whatever..but you need to be able to channel it in order to overcome."
