Relapse Doesn't Have to Be a "Normal" Part of Addiction Recovery

Lately I've been receiving a number of articles into my inbox, talking about addicts who relapse after they come out of treatment. Most of these writers are telling me that relapse is a 'normal part of recovery' from addiction. First of all, I don't agree with this premise at all, and secondly, I totally fail to see how it's helpful for an addict coming out of rehab to be armed with that kind of biased and ultimately untrue information.
