I want you to know there is hope for him; if HE wants it. I am starting a group where I live called Dual Diagnosis.
I am very excited about beginning a group here; it can help my small community a lot. The thing is, and this is very important, people HAVE to want this step for THEMSELVES before they take that step. Just support him, show your love, above all do not become his enabler. Learn what Manic - Depressive (bi-polar) is about and all that comes under its huge umbrella.

Hope this helps you; I am here if you need anything.
MaryAlice, I wish I lived closer, I'd be the first to join you group. Its a daily struggle to stay clean with bipolar disorder. If you have any suggestions to help I'd appreciate them. Right now it's one day at a time, just harder with my biggest support system gone for awhile.
