I never said it was the entire solution. I was only responding to your earlier dismissal of the program.
...
Compared to what exactly?

I didn't dismiss the program, just put it in its place. Remember it is mainly a Christian program with little research behind it. If you look at the 12 steps, clearly 12 of them deal with religion and God (2, 3, 5, 6, 7, & 11). I don't include step 12 as religious, even though it talks about spirituality because that is a bit broader and the real benefit is applying lessons to the rest of your life beyond the addiction.

There are other addiction programs with higher success rate, but yes even they are far from perfect and none of them compete in bringing the benefits to as many people. The real competition however is not solving the addiction but at least keeping people alive and relatively healthy and minimizing the impact on others; and it should not be considered competition but complementary.
