Art Therapy

Art therapy as a type of expressive group therapy that assists individuals in expressing their thoughts and feelings that they may not be able to say with words. This therapy is especially helpful for people who have underlying psychological issues related to their addiction, such as a history of abuse. Since creating art is often a nonverbal process, and expands the ways an individual can convey ideas and emotions, art therapy provides an opportunity to explore, understand, and resolve issues in a person’s life that he or she may not feel comfortable talking about in a regular conversation.
