Art for Recovery


At A Wise Retreat we use evidence-based art therapy which has been proven to help restore physical, mental and emotional well-being. For those clients who have difficulty expressing themselves verbally art therapy can help them communicate their inner feelings, emotions and thoughts without saying a word. This type of therapy can help in resolving issues, identifying and managing feelings and behaviors, and improving awareness and self-esteem.

Research has found that evidence art therapy can be a beneficial treatment for those suffering from co-occurring disorders as well. We use traditional forms of art, such as painting, drawing and music as well as a variety of other types of visual art expression. Art therapy is reflective, dynamic, interactive methodology of self-discovery, emotional awareness, insight and decision making that helps participants better define and create the life they want to live.
