Double Trouble in Recovery (DTR) is a twelve-step fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so that they may solve their common problems and help others to recover from their particular addiction / alcoholism and manage their mental disorder.
DTR is designed to meet the needs of the dually-diagnosed, and is clearly for those having addictive substance problems as well as having been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorders.
We also address the problems and benefits associated with psychiatric medication; thus, we recognize that for many, having mental disorders represents Double Trouble in Recovery.
Step 1; We admitted we were powerless over mental disorders and substance abuse — that our lives had become unmanageable.
We who have addiction and mental disorders are compelled to walk a long and narrow path. When we go out of control with our substances of choice, we become lost.
In our fellowship, we band together for common good and recovery. With open-minded understanding of each other, we honestly expose our problems and our weaknesses. The humility we show shall never mask the courage it takes to admit who and what we are. Together, we will find the hope and strength that leads to serenity and a meaningful life.
Therefore, working the DTR Twelve Steps and regular attendance at DTR and other appropriate self-help groups will help us gain the rewards of sanity, serenity and freedom from addictions.
