Methadone Quotes: Keeping You Motivated Through Treatment

Posted on :  June 18th, 2016  |  By :  towardsrecovery

During difficult times, being able to relate to other people can help. Your counselor, physician, and pharmacist can provide some motivation, but not like the people who have struggled through the same difficulties as you have. One of the most useful ways to stay on track is to have helpful quotes nearby. Whether you put one on your favorite coffee mug or you keep one folded up in your wallet, pick a few favorite quotes and read them when you are in need of a little pick-me-up.

Quotes about the Journey

“Every day men, women, and adolescents take their first steps on this journey. Dramatic changes do happen.” – Joe Herzanek

“Experience is not what happens to you, it is what you do with what happens to you.” – Aldous Huxley

“When women sit in a circle a sacred space is created to work and create together, listen, learn and share with one another—to get support from one other.” – Shelley Richanbach

Quotes about Addiction

“Addiction begins with the hope that something ‘out there’ can instantly fill up the emptiness inside.” – Jean Kilbourne

Choosing a favorite quote for different situations can be a liberating moment. Many addicts feel like they are completely alone in their journey to sobriety. In many cases, family members are unable to provide the type of support that recovering addicts need. Finding a shared voice, like that of someone who has experienced methadone treatment, can make the journey more comfortable and successful.
