Question Should I go to al anon?

I grew up with a drug addicted father. Got messed up with drugs and alcohol growing up. Got clean and was doing great. Then I'm pretty sure I married an alcoholic and a drug addict. We had a child. Now divorced. I felt brainwashed, manipulated and emotionally abused throughout the marriage. I'm realizing I have a huge Codependancy problem. I also feel my husband messed with my head so much that I'm still not quite sure going to al anon would help me. I just want to get healthy. Push out the negative and bring on the positive. Is al anon for me or not? I'm afraid to go alone.

It might be helpful.

Counselling could be helpful to you, too.

And, there are lots of good books on codependency, too.

@Anna, do you have any recommendations on books for codependency? This is a subject I have interest in as well.
