I have dual diagnosis. I also have post trauma stress

Customer Question

I have dual diagnosis. I also have post trauma stress disorder and sleep apnea. My addictions are to the medicine I took for my bipolar disorder and to sleeping pills. Since my sleep apnea is caused psychologically it has left it very difficult to treat. I have had two sleep tests. Are you aware of some where in Canada or in Toronto where I can go and get help?
