MYTH: Treatment doesn’t work

FACT: People who fear or don’t like the behavior associated with addiction are quick to point out the relapse often occurs, so therefore treatment doesn’t work. We need to remember that relapse also occurs with other disorders and diseases, such as diabetes and cancer.

Page 16: 2009 Ramble for Recovery

MYTH: Addicts can stop on their own if they just want to.

FACT: A desire to quit using is necessary but usually insufficient.

Recovery is the personal experience of the individual as he/she moves out of illness into

health.

Recovery can be claimed only by the person in recovery, and that ownership includes the right to

take risks, make mistakes and learn from one’s experiences.

The most certain way to

succeed is always to try just one more time."
