Her first book, Codependent No More, was published by Hazelden in 1986. Melody's compassionate and insightful look into codependency--the concept of losing oneself in the name of helping another--struck a universal chord among families struggling with a loved one's addiction or other life issues.

In 2009, Dr. Drew Pinsky named Codependent No More one of four essential self-help books of all time in Newsweek magazine.
