Double Trouble in Recovery

“Double Trouble” Support Group Provides Help for Alcohol/Drug Addiction and Mental Illness

SC SHARE will launch a new 12-step recovery program, called “Double Trouble”, for people who suffer from both addiction and mental illness.  This program is the first of its kind in South Carolina, because it provides support for those who suffer from a combination of alcohol and/or drug addition and mental illness. Many people who suffer from alcohol and drug addiction also have a variety of mental health problems, which can range from depression to schizophrenia.”

Because mental illness often requires a person to take medication to control the symptoms some people are uncomfortable talking about this in Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings due to concern over the use of even some prescription medications.  But in Double Trouble meetings, members can share their experiences, strength, and hope with each other, and help others find solutions to the problem unique to someone who suffers from both addiction and mental illness.

Double Trouble is similar to Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous in that it is not affiliated with any organization or institution. Nationally, Double Trouble in Recovery (DTR) was started in 1989 in a city hospital in Brooklyn, New York. Like most other 12-Step Groups, this one is based on the original steps and traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous. Each group is autonomous except in matters affecting other groups or DTR as a whole.

The local Double Trouble group meetings are open to anyone who suffers from dual diagnosis. Double Trouble maintains a strong tradition of anonymity for anyone who attends.  For more information please send us an email.
