What are the benefits of art therapy activities when treating addiction?


A lot of the people in my groups will
say, “Oh I I’m not good at it.” Or, “I’m not a good artist.” Or, “I can’t draw and this
that and the other.” And my goal is to help you see that everybody can.
Everybody has that ability it’s just like learning to ride a bike or anything
like that: The more you practice it, the better you get at it. You have to get used to your tools you
have to get used to visualizing and looking at what’s in front of you and
converting that into something beautiful things you start with nothing and make
something beautiful. We do perspective drawing and I kind of
geared that towards changing your perspective on the way you look at life
being content with the situations that you’re in and if you’re not content,
only you have the ability to change it – just like an eraser changes things. Once they latch onto that, that’s when
the light bulb comes on and they’re like “Well I really can do this!” And then
they talk about how they don’t want to just do it, they want to take it home and
show their kids and show their family members and stuff like that so it’s
pretty neat. We can do everything and anything we put
our mind to. It’s not necessarily gonna be immediate, but, like I said, if you
visualize what you really want, what you really care about – you will work for it
and you will obtain it.
