In brief: Depends on disease

The chance of a relapse depends on the disease, the treatment, and how well the problem was eradicated (whether or not completely removed).

In brief: Relapse and Recovery

All addicts have the potential for relapse.
Relapse is often part of the story of recovery. But, it does not always happen. Just look at the long timers in recovery. See them stay on a program of one day at a time and a program of spiritual fitness and rigorous honesty. You can get into and stay in recovery.
