Since I have a dual diagnosis, of severe clinical depression and alcoholism I found this book incredibly helpful for working the 12 steps with my Depressed Anonymous group.The book is an easy read with guidance paralleling the Big Book and clinical psychology for treating mental illness. I found this book to be inspiring and necessary to my recovery. I also believe that partners of dually diagnosed persons would benefit from reading this book as well.
