Is It Too Much To Ask

Is it too much to ask DH to do family counseling in addition to his own therapy and AA? I'm trying really hard to understand what he is going through but when I do talk to him and tell him what I would like to see when I come home it just sounds like either I'm asking too much of him or he just isn't in a place right now to do anything but focus on himself. He wants us to come home but he won't talk to me, he won't tell me what he is going through, he wont agree to family therapy. And when I ask him to just let me in he tells me that is step 9 and he is only on step on. I'm so confused. I just don't understand this process at all!
