For the millions of Americans who suffer in alcoholism-torn lives of loneliness, fear, shame, guilt, hurt, anger, and frustration, Another Chance offers invaluable insights and solid steps towards recovery. It shows what is happening with the alcoholic, within the alcoholic family, and within the world of professional treatment for chemical dependents, their co-dependents, and their adult children.
The first edition won the prestigious Marty Mann Award, which honors outstanding contributions and achievements in alcoholism communications.
Building on the success of that first edition, Wegscheider-Cruse has expanded this book to address issues of:
- adult children of alcoholics
- the importance of spirituality in recovery
- a powerful theraputic experience called a Family Reconstruction, and
- co-dependent therapists and their need for treatment.
Part of the author's treatment plan is built around the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. Another part is the potent Family Reconstruction process, drawn from the family-therapy work of Virginia Stair.

This is a great book if you are looking for information on the family roles created in the family to handle addiction. I have the earlier edition and it goes into detail about the each family role.
