12 Step + 5 Dual Diagnosis Recovery Programme
DUAL DIAGNOSIS ANONYMOUS (UK)
10/01/2022 – It is with great sadness to report that founding UK DDA member, John O’Donnell, passed away today. He had been in Charing Cross Hospital after a recent Stroke.
John was a much loved and respected man, who gave all his time to helping others who experienced the effects of a Dual Diagnosis. His support for others was unconditional and unwavering and there are countless times when he was able to support people out of a crisis.
We will all miss you greatly John but your legacy will live on.
What is Dual Diagnosis Anonymous (UK)?:
DDA stands for ‘Dual Diagnosis Anonymous‘.
We are a peer support/mutual aid fellowship that supports people with a combination of mental health issues and addiction/substance/alcohol misuse (otherwise known as a Dual Diagnosis).
We follow a ’12 plus 5′ Step Model. Our extra 5 steps specifically address the mental health aspect of a dual diagnosis. Therefore our programme of recovery is particularly designed to support people who are struggling with more than one problem.
We are made up of people who have lived experience of Dual Diagnosis, so know what someone may be going through.
At Dual Diagnosis Anonymous our services are not just limited to those who are struggling with dual disorders. We also welcome and extend our help to their families and friends, as well as health care providers and other interested parties.
