Furthermore, the best treatment for an individual from a biblical worldview would be, faith-based treatment, where the end goal is to incorporate the spiritual dimension into treatment, Also, integrating God and scriptures into a treatment plan could be a problem with an individual who does not know God, and it could be at times challenging. However, God is the ipso facto, which does make a difference. However, secular counseling does not even try to establish God in the treatment plan but focuses entirely on the scientific and medical conditions of addiction, with no soul searching at all. Moreover, secular treatment will tell an individual that addiction is a disease that cannot be cured but can be treated, whereas faith-based treatment will focus on God and scripture. An example would be, "He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions" (Psalms 107:20, King James Version).

As it was stated earlier in this paper, alcohol does not show bias towardsanyone. However, the ultimate authority, which is God, does not show bias, and He does get the last word. Besides, He is also a forgiving God and will forgive anyone and heal all addictions if the individual will ask for forgiveness.
