      There seems to be a single starting point for psychology, exactly as for all the other sciences: the world as we find it, naively and uncritically.

        Comprehensive Services for MIDAA

Hello, I'm Kathleen Sciacca, and I would like to welcome you to the Dual Diagnosis Website. Dual Diagnosis refers to co-occurring Mental Illness, Drug Addiction and/or Alcoholism in various combinations.

This site is designed to provide information and resources for service providers, consumers, and family members who are seeking assistance and/or education in this field.

The ultimate goal is to improve our service delivery systems. Our present systems have evolved to address singular/discrete disorders. It is entirely possible to reshape our mental health and substance abuse systems, and communities of care across systems, to provide comprehensive services to all consumers. In doing so, these programs will be able to provide effective interventions for persons who have dual/multiple disorders.
