These days, millions of people are either championing their Inner Child, in the process of becoming Co-Dependent No More, or meditating so that they can Stop Doing Too Much. 12-Step programs are virtually everywhere. But do conventional recovery programs work for Jewish people?

No, and for very good reasons: Jewish people do not recover from psychological problems in bare storefronts or church activity rooms, for less than the equivalent of a down payment on a condo, or while holding hands with strangers. Moreover, most 12-Steps programs put a lot of emphasis on a “higher power” who is seen as a dominant male God-force. Naturally, this is out of the question for Jewish people, where dominant males exist only among the Hasidim.

But now, Anna Sequoia, author of the best-selling The Official J.A.P Handbook, returns with a recovery book for people who don't have time right now for a 12-step program because they really should call Mom.
