Dual Diagnosis Consultation, Outreach Stabilization Service
Hôtel-Dieu Grace Healthcare’s (HDGH) Dual Diagnosis Consultation program, located on the CPH floors of the Toldo Neurobehavioural Institute, is an outreach stabilization service for those individuals, 16 years of age or older, with a pre-existing Developmental Disability indicated by an IQ of 70 or less, and also have a Psychiatric Disorder.
What can I expect?
A two to three (2-3) hour assessment will take place to determine if you are eligible for Dual Diagnosis Consultation services. The assessment will be completed by a registered nurse and will take place at HDGH or potentially in your home.
Based on the information collected, an intervention plan will be created to monitor and stabilize your symptoms. A meeting will then be set up with you, your family or caregiver, the nurse, and the program’s Psychiatrist.
Your healthcare team, along with your primary healthcare provider, and community organizations will work together to create your personalized treatment plan.
Due to the specialization of the program, referrals to the Dual Diagnosis Program may only be received from physicians or psychiatrists.
Please contact the Dual Diganosis Program if you have any questions on how to access services.
Dual Diagnosis Consultation program at HDGH is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. Services are provided at no cost to you upon presentation of a valid OHIP card.

Families’ and Friends’ Role in Promoting Safety

attendance of appointments, taking medications and asking to be involved in
understanding and facilitating treatment plans is recommended among family
members and friends. If family members and friends have serious concerns
about a loved one’s safety and well-being please utilize emergency (911) or
crisis hotline (519-973-4435) services or locations (nearest emergency room or
