Art therapy has been used in substance abuse treatment since the 1950s, and it has since been used as a way to provide emotional release, self-expression, stress management, and adjustment to recovery.Art therapy highlights the role of creative activity as a form of nonverbal communication. Language is not always the most effective way to convey the emotions that are uncovered in the recovery process. Art therapy can act as a powerful complement to traditional talk therapy by giving clients an alternative way to describe and communicate their feelings. Once these feelings have been released, art provides a visible, tangible object that can be discussed our therapist. Sanctum provides a program that’s structured to include a rich range of experiential therapies such as Art therapy in which one can easily choose to participate.
