12 Step + 5 Dual Diagnosis Recovery Programme
DUAL DIAGNOSIS ANONYMOUS (UK)
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.
