Millions of people with addictions have pursued their recovery journeys through Alcoholics Anonymous' twelve-step program. However, many people with addictions also suffer from mental health disorders, which more traditional twelve-step workbooks do not address. Similarly, the healthcare system has generally failed to implement addiction-mental health integrated treatments. Since 1996, Dual Diagnosis Anonymous has addressed this crucial healthcare need via personal, community, and political advocacy for those persons that are dually diagnosed and their families.
A culmination of decades' worth of ideas and advice, Dual Diagnosis Anonymous: A Journey Through the Twelve Steps Plus Five is a strategic workbook that offers hope for achieving recovery from the dual diagnosis of addiction and mental illness.
