Addiction leads to social withdrawal and isolation. When you have an addiction, everything and everyone becomes insignificant and the addiction is your number one priority. People who struggle with addiction need a treatment program that can help them find their self-identity. Many treatment options include therapeutic healing techniques and incorporate art therapy into their programs.
A holistic therapy that encompasses a mind, body, spirit approach, gives you the ability to discover yourself without the control of addiction. A clear mind will help you to understand why you developed an addiction. Often people have an underlying mental health condition that amplifies the risk of developing an addiction.
Art therapy is incorporated into treatment programs as a therapeutic tool for healing and as a means to make a client more comfortable when entering treatment. This type of therapy works well for clients who have difficulty talking about emotions, thoughts, or experiences. Art therapy helps a person to open up socially, get involved with group meetings and activities, and participate in community work outside of treatment.
People who go through traumatic events or have post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and addiction can struggle to talk about their experiences. Some people find it is easier to express feelings and experiences with their hands. Art therapy breaks down barriers to communication.
When a person has difficulty talking about the past or open up about his or her addiction, art therapy is very helpful. People can express themselves through painting, drawing, sculpting, or use paper mache and pottery. These activities help clients to ease into treatment and pave the way for a successful and fulfilling recovery.
