Insightful observations about the culture of addiction treatment and twelve step programmes. These essays point out a trend towards victim-blaming by naming the spouses of addicts as co-dependent, or enablers, simply for being unlucky enough to have an addicted or abusive partner.

There are a lot of disturbing trends towards blaming the woman for putting up with bad behaviour, the example that got me was the bestselling book Women who love too much where it becomes the womans fault, and her responsibility to change instead of naming it men who love to little and putting the onus on men to behave more kindly.The focus of these essays are largely alcoholism and al-anon. What I didnt enjoy was the fact that they are all so very similar, I didnt read them in order, and in the end I couldnt remember which ones i had already read.
