DDA Step 5 of 5
“We continued to follow the DDA recovery program of the Twelve Steps Plus Five and we maintained health drug and alcohol free lifestyles and helped others.”
DDA Members Share their Experience on DDA Step 5 of 5:
“By working all of DDA’s Twelve Steps +5, I have discovered a manner of living that is both exciting, rich and rewarding. Because of finding a fellowship purely designed for people with a dual diagnosis, I was able to start and develop my recovery. DDA’s final Step tells me that as long as I keep working my DDA recovery programme and continue to help others, I will have a bright future.
For me, helping others doesn’t just apply to helping other DDA members. Thanks to DDA, I have managed to tap and utilise a power that helped me to get well, and that can now be used in practically every area of my life.
By putting down the drink and drugs as a means of coping with my problems and then working all of DDA’s steps as thoroughly as I can, I have discovered that there are lots of ways in which I can give back to the people around me. I also believe this Step reminds me of what recovery is all about: connection, love, & service.”
