Explore Art Therapy for Addiction at SJRP FL Rehab Center

The healing power of self-expression has helped people for thousands of years and continues to play an essential role in addiction treatment and recovery. The art therapy program at St. John’s Recovery Place isn’t just for “masters” or “artists” – in fact, most of us are far from what we would consider the “Van Gogh’s” of our time, but channeling our inner artist evokes a sense of comfort, healing and strength that no other form of therapy quite can.

Art therapy is a powerful arena for self-expression. The evolution of art therapy is seemingly proving to be an essential part of treatment that has been evolving since early use in addiction treatment in the 1950s. Often times art therapy is misjudged to be beneficial for only creative-like people. We have found this to be far from the truth. Not only does art therapy provide a unique starting point for non-verbal communication of deep inner emotions, it is also a great stress and anxiety reliever.

Discover the joy of art therapy. Florida rehab programs like those offered at SJRP guide both individual and group healing sessions with a diverse range of therapies. We’re sure you will find something to love about the art therapy program for addiction recovery at our Florida rehab center, but if art isn’t your thing, don’t worry! We have plenty of other therapy programs to help residents heal from deeply rooted trauma and pain that is often present with SUD.

“This is the power of art: The power to transcend our own self-interest, our solipsistic zoom-lens on life, and relate to the world and each other with more integrity, more curiosity, more wholeheartedness.”

-Greek philosopher Aristophanes

A Little Creativity Goes a Long Way in Recovery

At SJRP we believe that art therapy is beneficial for everyone. And while we believe that everyone has creativity within them, we understand that not everyone is artistic. From stick figures to canvas art, art therapy for addiction allows clients to express their past, and explore the future. In the art therapy room, there are no right or wrong ways to express yourself – choose painting, sculpture, music-making, dancing, or another craft.

Art therapy has proven to be beneficial for veterans suffering from PTSD and depression. Veterans with PTSD suffer similar symptoms of those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. Studies have shown reduced symptoms and higher levels of self-control even after only a couple of sessions.
