Christ is life; but life is not Christ. Lucifer has given a shiny little ball called "life" to the recovery that he uses to distract the saints from Christ. The level of idolatry in the recovery can be measured by the degree that "life" is the focus rather than Christ. To be fair, I don't think idolatry is restricted to the recovery. For example in the past my current denomination was known for preaching "once saved always saved". To the degree that the saints in this denomination focused on the security of the believer rather than on the one who secures the salvation, Christ Himself, would be an indicator of idolatry.
