Dual Anon is a Twelve Step fellowship.  Our purpose is to help family and friends of people who experience a dual disorder of chemical dependency and an emotional or psychiatric illness.  We do this by practicing the Twelve Steps, by welcoming and giving comfort to one another, by sharing our experience, strength and believable hope, and by giving encouragement and understanding to people who experience a  dual disorder. 

Dual Anon is an independent,  non-professional, self-help organization.  We have no professional affiliation; we do not provide counseling or other social services.  Dual-Anon has no opinion regarding treatment methods, the use of medications, or other methods of managing chemical dependency or emotional or psychiatric illness. 

Dual Anon is not allied with any other organization or institution, does not engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any cause.  Dual Anon has no opinion on the way other groups address recovery.  We do not criticize the efforts of others.  There are no dues for membership.  Dual Anon family groups are self-supporting through our own donations.
