Overview

Spirituality and Chemical Dependency shares current thinking on how spirituality is used in recovery from alcoholism and other forms of chemical dependency. The 12-Step programs have been the most successful form of treatment thus far; you will find the insight in this book to be revealing as to why.

Each of the contributors has devoted a significant part of his or her life to help those suffering from chemical addiction. In each chapter, the author gives ideas on specific aspects of spirituality in the 12-Step context and answers the ever-important question “So what?!” to provide guidelines for healthy spirituality in the addicted person.

The book contains no figures.
