Sounds like psychobabble to me. I assume you're not religious. Neither am I. However, lots of people find strength in religious faith, and if they do, more power to them. Hamilton admittedly was not religious before he got into drugs. Now he is, and although he's had some relapses, he apparently has not gone back to drugs. If his faith helps him deal with things, that's great for him.
