double trouble in recovery

Double Trouble in Recovery is a 12-step fellowship of people who share their experience, strength, and hope with each other so that they may solve their common problems and help others to recover from their particular substance use and behavioral health challenges.

DTR is designed to meet the needs of the dually diagnosed, and is for those who have been diagnosed with a psychiatric disorder.

We address the problems and benefits associated with psychiatric medication, and we recognize that for many, having addiction and mental health challenges represents Double Trouble in Recovery.

In our fellowship, we band together for common good and recovery. With open-minded understanding of each other, and with honesty, we share our problems and our challenges, and celebrate our accomplishments. The humility we show will never mask or cover the courage it takes to admit who and what we are. Together, we find the hope and strength that lead to serenity, and lives of purpose and meaning.

The DTR meeting format is similar to other 12-step meetings. Meetings typically last an hour or an hour-and-a-half, and participation is entirely voluntary, though visitors and newcomers are given the opportunity to introduce themselves. The facilitators of DTR meetings organized by the Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network are also dually diagnosed, have between 6 and 22 years in recovery, are encouraged to take care of their mental health and work on their own personal recovery.

There are no dues or fees for DTR membership or participation. Meetings are held across Georgia and in the metropolitan Atlanta area. Please see the schedules below for the time and location nearest you. To request an update to this schedule, please email

Double Trouble in Recovery was introduced to the Atlanta metro area in 1996; the idea was to have drop-in centers for the homeless so they would have a place to go during the Olympics. Double Trouble in Recovery was added to the drop-in centers during the Olympics.


Double Trouble originated in three churches in the Ponce de Leon area of Atlanta, and was named the Ponce Project. The Ponce Project comes under the umbrella of the Georgia Mental Heath Consumer Network. Since that time, DTR has continued to grow, and we now have dozens of meetings in metro Atlanta and across the state, including two meetings in all the Georgia Regional hospitals and several meetings in the communities surrounding the hospitals.
