In brief: Yes but

The depression is secondary to the addiction- treat the addiction first then reassess whether depressed feelings continue to persist.
See a professional who specializes in addiction. You are not likely to get the help you need from just reading a book! self help is fine , like 12 step programs , but seeking help is the first step...
