In rehab, you benefit from art in therapy because it helps you find new ways to deal with your addiction. You look more deeply into yourself and practice healthy coping skills through your art. In some ways, art lets you dig deeper when compared to talk therapy.
Art group therapy helps, too. Peers in group therapy use their art to help each other understand their struggles. You also gain an understanding of other people in the group at the same time.
Where You Find Therapies Using Art
Creative and experiential therapies using art take place in a licensed rehab center offering this type of counseling. The art helps you work through your emotions, experiences, and issues leading to your addiction and making it worse. You gain a safe place to talk about issues at the root of your problems. If you do not do well with talk therapy, art opens new doors for personal change and growth.
