< I need meetings for the dually diagnosed and there aren't any around here. I started feeling so out of place that I haven't been in probably a year. >

your above is in the top 3 reasons i quit attending na at 2 1/2 yrs - of my 9.

met a nice couple from AZ at about 8 yrs. - din-din after my home-group meeting. they DO (or did) have dual dx in the phoenix area. way too hot me out there; no ty!

i did have the pleasure of having similar, but, of course, led by an sa counselor, in my hometown's detox; place now gone - cut for 'financial reasons;' 1st of all depts. to go. typical newer trend. sad. this guy was NOT a former 'addict,' unlike all others. imo, that's BIG plus; many will disagree...ach. he'd been there since inception. program had already been cut back from 3 or 4 wks to 18 days ( 6 mos. aftercare.) place was around for many years. separate psych ward on another floor = always good idea.

now, there is almost nowhere for folks to go, no matter how dire their situation; still may be 2 or 3 in the 'big city,' cincinnnati 1... a ways up north.

these classes i had were called double trouble (in reverence to stevie ray vaughn - joking). the phoenix couple told me their dual dx na meetings were called same.

i don't find the term offensive, but far closer to the truth funny. i might even stop into 1 of those.... ha....
