In brief: 100%

Addiction is a chronic, progressive, relapsing disease.
Regression is inevitable. Those who are recovering maintain a support system so that relapses are increasingly brief and less disruptive. Those who do not recover either become increasing ill, or expend so much energy attempting to control their disease that little energy is available for any other activity.
