Double Trouble in Recovery (DTR)

Certain limitations of traditional single focus mutual aid groups spurred the development of dual focus fellowships designed to address the needs of persons with both mental health and substance use problems. One of these dual focus mutual aid groups is Double Trouble in Recovery (DTR). Founded in 1989, DTR is a program adapted from the 12 Steps of AA, specifically designed to embrace the specialized needs of persons with co-occurring substance use and mental health problems. NDRI with support from NIDA (R01DA023119), has developed two eLearning modules to help mental health clinicians initiate and sustain dual focus mutual aid groups in their facility. DTR is registered on SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP). More information on DTR can be found here: http://www.hazelden.org/web/go/dtr.
