DRA (Dual Recovery Anonymous)


DRA was established to help men and women who experience a dual disorder.

 A dual disorder occurs when an individual is affected by both chemical dependency and an emotional or mental illness. Our primary purpose is to help one another achieve dual recovery, to prevent relapse, and to carry the message to others who experience a dual disorder.

The DRA program is based on the Twelnve Steps and personal experiences of men and women in dual recovery. There are only two requirements for membership,

1. A desire to stop using alcohol and other intoxicating drugs. 

2. A desire to manage your emotional or psychiatric illness in a healthy and constructive way

There are no dues or fees for DRA membership. Newcomers do not need a referral from a professional service provider. DRA is Every Tuesday from 12:00pm-1:00pm and is open to everyone
