In brief: Most likely

The brain's and body's ability to repair itself never ceases to amaze me.
If you had a significant addiction problem or abused drugs early in your life there is a good chance that you can experience full recovery. There might be other untreated psychiatric issues going on such as adhd, depression or anxiety and a good evaluation by a psychiatrist who is asam (http://www.Asam.Org/) certified.
