Art Therapy for Addiction in Florida

Addiction is a complex disease that often has roots in various areas of a person’s life. When it comes to recovering from addiction, self-expression is beneficial to the healing process. Here at Into Action Treatment we utilize art as a source of therapy. Through art, patients are able to communicate their pain and experiences giving therapists and themselves a view into their inner world. Patients who can face the deep-seated┬áissues at the root of their addictions have a greater chance at taking control of their addiction and conquering their problems. This is the ultimate goal of Into Action Treatment.

Art Therapy for Addiction

An interesting complexity of the human mind is the division between the conscious and subconscious. Humans are aware of the events and conditions of their lives on both levels. The two are a natural part of human mentality but a language barrier separates them. The conscious mind uses everyday language, the subconscious only communicates in abstract ways.

Art therapy for addiction gives patients the connection between both levels.

Talking can only help so much, even highly motivated patients feel the limits of this. Artistic expression opens the floodgate of communication so that patients can understand things about themselves they currently suppress. Once the line of communication is open, the healing begins.
