12 Step + 5 Dual Diagnosis Recovery Programme
DUAL DIAGNOSIS ANONYMOUS (UK)
DDA are organising a DDA beach barbecue for Sunday the 18th of July 2021.
We’re looking for suggestions for the location. It has to be accessible for members traveling from London and other locations. Once we’ve decided on a location I’ll organise a carpool to get people to the beach.
Alan and John O’D are putting together a committee to organise the event and anybody interested in helping out can text or phone John on the DDA Support line number:
We can also help people who want to attend the event with fares on public transport if they need to travel to a pickup point to be taken to the beach…
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.
