Patients at Willow House at The Meadows engage in expressive arts therapy through a variety of modalities, including painting, pottery, clay arts, and therapeutic assignments. Expressive arts therapy is an effective component in the recovery process that empowers patients with their own unique voices.
Healing through Art
Among the advantages of expressive arts therapy:
- Patients share their perceptions and viewpoints that might otherwise be difficult to express through more traditional therapies.
- Promoting a sense of freedom allows patients to unearth and dissect their inner feelings during the healing process.
- Using images to express their feelings may be easier than conveying these feelings in words.
Art Therapy to Help You Heal
Willow House at The Meadows knows that art therapy helps our patients heal and resolve emotional trauma. In a safe and nurturing community composed of their peers, women are guided on their journey of recovery by examining the underlying causes of addiction and co-occurring disorders. The goal is for these individuals to gain the courage to face difficult issues, including grief and loss; heal from emotional trauma; and become accountable for their own feelings, behaviors, and recovery.
