Welcome to the Dual Diagnosis Website of Peel and Halton Regions

On behalf of the Peel Region Committee for Persons with a Dual Diagnosis, I would like to welcome you to our dual diagnosis website.

This website has been developed for multitude of reasons:

  • Staff and families want to know what specific programmes are being offered and where. This type of information continuously changes which makes it difficult to keep up with it in print. However, our web site features ongoing services and new programms with links to the appropriate service providers.
  • Families want to talk to other families so that they can share ideas, support each other, and exchange information.
  • As education and training are always rated as crucial issues in the improvement of services to persons with a dual diagnosis, this web site provides information on current best practices, links to training resources such as books and videos, and links to other organizations involved with dual diagnosis.
  • Staff want the opportunity to talk to other staff outside their own agencies. By using this web site they can post questions asking for information and suggestions, and they are able to discuss coordination of their services. Through this website staff are able to support each other and receive feedback from someone who has experience in a specific topic. This ultimately results in better service provision for clients.

This web site has information pertaining to both Peel and Halton Regions. We hope that you will find it helpful. If you have any questions or information to add, please call us at 905-890-9432.

We would like to sincerely thank the Ministry of Community and Social Services and Ministry of Children's Services and the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care which jointly funded the start up of this site. Better communication will lead to better services, a goal we can all support!
