Dual Addiction

Dual Addiction is having both a mental illness and an addiction. In my opinion you would not be an addict if you did not have an underlying mental illness like anxiety, depression, PTSD, personality disorders, etc. (For a complete list I refer you to the DMS IV.)

Anxiety, depression, PTSD, I have it all. The VA is helping me with this. Why does the church not have programs to help with this? (Maybe they do and I'm just missing it).
They do thank God. It is called Celebrate Recovery. On the surface the organization seems to be talking about recovery from addiction, but inside of every addict is a person who has mental health issues. Most addicts are "dual addicted," which means they are struggling with addiction and mental health issues. I know I am.

Any program that does not accept the need to treat the underlying mental healthy issues will only bring you a short term solution. Any program that does utilize spirituality will fail. Here is there link:
