In brief: Depends on cause
Some cardiomyopathies can be treated or rarely "cured" but most cannot.
Dilated is the most common. Some curable forms include nutritional, lbbb, tachycardia induced, sarcoid. Most can be treated with medication to stabilize the damage. Some cardiomyopathies will spontaneously improve. Others will progress. Restrictive and hypertrophic can also be managed. 400 characters is too short to answer.

In brief: Various causes
Cardiomyopathy is a generic term for abnormal heart muscle.
It can be caused by infections, poisons, genetics, and physiologic causes. There are both weak heart and 'strong heart' cardiomyopathies. The cause of someone's cardiomyopathy requires more information than the term cardiomyopathy.
