Dual Recovery 12-Step Fellowships

Double Trouble in Recovery

The organization provides 12 steps that are based on a traditional adaptation of the original 12 steps. For example, the identified problem in step one is changed to co-occurring disorders, and the population to be assisted is changed in step 12 accordingly. The organization provides a format for meetings that are chaired by members of the fellowship.

The organization provides 12 steps that are an adapted and expanded version of the traditional 12 steps. The expanded approach changes the identified problem to co-occurring disorders, and the population to be assisted is changed accordingly. It also retains most of the traditional language while modifying certain terms in an effort to meet the needs of mental health consumers. In addition, it incorporates affirmations into three of the 12 steps. The organization provides a meeting format that is used by fellow members who chair the meetings.
