What is an Art Therapy Program?
Art therapy addresses the emotional and spiritual needs of a person in addiction recovery. As a form of experiential therapy, the person does not need an artistic background. All they need is a willingness to actively engage in sessions. Doing so helps to ensure they get the full benefit of finding healthy ways to express themselves.
They may find that creative activity is an enjoyable and relaxing way to address complex issues. Tough aspects of rehab that produce stressful emotions are easier to process as the person explores their creativity. Activities such as drawing, music or painting become a way to express their feelings and anxieties.
