OFG certainly isn't, and no one I know who's gone to treatment is either.

So...in the end, it doesn't matter if it doesn't "cure/remove" addition, so long as it improves their life and they STOP DRINKING it 'works'. I don't think that most people have to pay a price any higher than what they would pay if they continued to use.

It's like that episode of Spongebob, when Spongebob was fooling with the shrink ray on Mermaid Man's utility belt and accidentally shrunk Squidward, and then every else in Bikini bottom one after another. In the end he couldn't figure out how to reverse it, so he just shrunk the whole town, too, and they were like, "Hey, this is alright I guess. What's the difference?"

Even if it doesn't remove addition, so long as they aren't drinking, what's the big difference for those who use the system?
You're exactly right. The gravest mistake an alcoholic can make is to think he/she is cured. Each day I get a one day reprieve from my affliction and I can go a day without drinking. I'll always be an alcoholic. A pickle can't be turned back into a cucumber.
