Back in the fall of 2009, I was asked to start a 12 Step group for people who had mental illness and chemical addiction. I think I mentioned this in a previous post.
Right now, our group has grown to two nights. We have had a steady number of people coming, although the numbers are small. The amount of change in these people is wonderful. So many people are hopeless in the search of recovery from both a chemical addiction and mental illness.
If you or a loved one fights with these issues, check out DRA online. They will give you the information you need to find a group in your area or even start a group yourself. It is well worth the effort.
They have books similar to the AA Big Book and the 12 n12. You can find those in a local bookstore or at Amazon easily. They provide the steps you need in order to achieve recovery. The books offer a great deal of encouragement also.
Check it out.
