This book reviews the history of mutual support groups for addiction that have arisen as adjuncts or alternatives to Twelve Step Programs, including secular mutual support groups like Secular Organization for Sobriety, Smart Recovery and Women for Sobriety, and faith-based mutual support groups like Celebrate Recovery. Families and friends of addicts also have their own mutual support groups. These mutual support groups are examined in terms of their histories, theoretical underpinnings and intended communities.
