Advice & Tips: Dual diagnosis has been extremely helpful to me. It has helped me view situations from multiple points of view, and it challenges me to rethink my actions. I have received amazing advice from the therapists and the patients. My therapist is amazing. I have never seen someone so intuitive in my life, and able to work with a group. I have been very fortunate to be a member of my group, and to get to know the other people involved.
