Praise God that recovery is possible!
Spiritual recovery, that is. Not that physical recovery from illness, etc, isn't important, but the life we live on this earth is nothing compared to the eternity we have to live after we leave.
God has given us a most excellent way.
When Jesus was hanging on the cross, He gave us hope. A man was hanging on a cross beside Him because he deserved to die. He spoke to Jesus...
Luke 23:42 - Then he said to Jesus, "Lord, remember me when You come into Your kingdom." And Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you will be with Me in Paradise."
And that was that. The condemned man received an eternity of blessing because he asked. He asked Jesus.
Jesus listened to a man who was sent to death row (Luke 23:39-43). Jesus listened to a woman who had five husbands and was living with a man she was not married to (John 4:7-42). Jesus listened to a man who denied Him three times (Luke 22:61). Jesus forgave the people who whipped Him, beat Him, nailed Him to a piece of wood, and watched Him die, and mocked Him during the process (Luke 23:33-34).
Noone has done too much to be forgiven. Praise God that it is so.

And Jesus said to His disciples...

Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)
After this manner, therefore pray ye:
"Our Father which art in heaven,
"Hallowed be Thy name.
"Thy kingdom come.
"Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
"Give us this day our daily bread,
"And forgive us our debts
"As we forgive our debtors.
"And lead us not into temptation,
"But deliver us from evil:
"For Thine is the kingdom,
"And the power, and the glory
"For ever. Amen."
