You're only as sick as your secrets

It's apparently a phrase used by alcoholics and drug addicts.
Is there a French equivalent?

On n'est jamais aussi malade que ses secrets ?

    It means your sickness can be measured by the secrets you keep. The more you have, the sicker you are. I suppose it is intended to suggest that talking about your problems is healthy, while keeping them secret is unhealthy.
