Program:Art Expression Therapy
Effective & Creative Treatments for Our Patients
Art expression therapy is a holistic practice that has shown to produce positive outcomes for individuals who are suffering from drug and/or alcohol addiction. This evidence-based, holistic therapy is often used to induce specific moods which trigger positive characteristics. Creating art can help foster those moods and feelings, allowing the therapist and patient to identify positive and negative feelings. The patients are given effective tools that can be used when addressing the negative consequences of their addiction. Since creating art is often a nonverbal process, and expands the ways a person can convey ideas and emotions, art therapy provides an opportunity to explore, understand, and resolve issues in a person’s life that he may not feel comfortable talking about in a regular conversation.
