Quotes About Co-Occurring Disorders
Dual diagnosis recovery can be difficult, and sometimes a little bit of additional inspiration is necessary. When a person suffers from a dual diagnosis disorder, he or she suffers from a substance abuse disorder and a mental illness. While recovery is made slightly more difficult by a co-occurring disorder, making a full and long-term recovery is always possible when the right tools are in place.
The individual in question will learn the majority of these tools in a dual diagnosis treatment center – however, as we mentioned beforehand, an extra boost is sometimes necessary. We have compiled a list of inspirational quotes to help you or your loved one overcome any hurdles that might be faced in dual diagnosis recovery. For more insight and advice reach out to Agape Treatment Center by contacting us and we will be happy to assist you.
Motivational Quotes for Dual Diagnosis Recovery
I have no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom. – Edgar Allen Poe
Addiction is just a way of trying to get at something else. Something bigger. Call it transcendence if you want, but it’s like a rat in a maze. We all want the same thing. We all have this hole. The thing you want offers relief, but it’s a trap. – Tess Callahan
Addictions…started like magical pets, pocket monsters. They did extraordinary tricks, showed you things you hadn’t seen, were fun. But came, through some gradual dire alchemy, to make decisions for you. Eventually, they were making your most crucial life-decisions. And they were… less intelligent than goldfish. – William Gibson
Addiction is a monster; it lives inside, and feeds off of you, takes from you, controls you, and destroys you. It is a beast that tears you apart, rips out your soul, and laughs at your weakness. It is a stone wall that stands to keep you in and the rest out. It is a shadow that always lurks behind you, waiting to strike. Addiction lives in everyone’s mind, sitting, staring, waiting. – Anonymous
I mean when I say my biggest fear in early recovery was that I would never have fun again. The beautiful truth is that recovery has given me freedom and the confidence to go out in the world and leave my mark. – Tom Stoddart
The first thought that I had about really trying to get sober was, ‘Man, I could do a lot of good in the world. I can lead by example and just be this heroic recovery guy.’ And that’s just a bad reason to get sober. You can’t get sober for anybody’s benefit, let alone the world at large. You got to do it for yourself. – Steve-O
“Higher Power was the result of a personal experience: a friend of mine who went through the process of addiction and recovery. It’s a very, very tough thing – very easy to become addicted and very, very hard to become a recovering addict. – Tom Scholz
