From Our Editors

In this penetrating synthesis of feminist, chemical dependency and mental health theories, Schaef introduces the addictive process, explores its attributes and points the way to functioning outside the system.

Editorial Reviews

"Anne Wilson Schaef eloquently articulates the problems and processes of addiction and codepenency. Challenging readers to more beyond their own dependency issues and to recognize the addictive system we live in, she offers us a much clearer option of choosing, not to die, but to live." (Claudia A. Black, author of It Will Never Happen to Me)
