Art therapy is a hybrid field combining art with psychology in order to make use of the creative process by making pieces of art to help to delve into and explore emotions, cultivate self-awareness, focus on unresolved emotional issues, bolster social skills, and improve self-esteem. Emotional and psychological hurdles may stand in your way of making progress towards your life goals and art therapy is one of the methods to re-engage yourself with your creative side by making something that reflects how you are feeling or would like to feel in the future.

By making something that appeals to your aesthetic you will gain satisfaction in knowing that you made something out of nothing whether it is a painting, sculpture, poem, or short film. Many people when transitioning from using alcohol or drugs to a sober life don’t know what to do with their free time. Just as exercise can be a boon to your physical state, making a piece of art can have a positive effect on your mind and overall well-being.

Art therapy’s effectiveness has been debated but evidence has shown that art therapy was shown to help adult survivors of trauma decrease levels of depression and decidedly alleviate their trauma symptoms. Cancer patients undergoing medical treatment were found to have many of their psychological symptoms abate and their quality of life greatly improved. Art therapy helps fight the good fight against anxiety and depression and a host of other symptoms tangentially related to overcoming addiction.

Art therapy provides many psychological benefits to its practitioners and breaks up the monotony of endless counseling sessions and medical treatments related to addiction recovery programs. There are many modalities to explore as you find what artistic pursuit best reflects your intentions and personal aesthetic. Maybe watercolor painting is not your thing. That is alright.
