Music & Art Therapy

Creativity connects us to our soul

Music & Art Therapy

The art process is a wonderful way to reflect on one’s life. Art can be used to help pull together and make sense of events from the past and present and helps us plan for the future.” Courtney Nichols, Art Therapist

Our Music Therapy program provides an opportunity for our residents to share their personal experiences through a creative medium in a safe, positive, and dynamic group setting. The facilitators’ main focus is to ignite your passions, drive, and purpose through love and appreciation of music.

Our various tastes in music often help to describe us as individuals, and can assist in identifying regrets, hopes, dreams, happiness, and strengths which are common among all of us in recovery.

Art Therapy combines the creative process and psychotherapy, facilitating self-exploration and understanding. Using imagery, colour and shape as part of this creative therapeutic process, thoughts and feelings can be expressed that would otherwise be difficult to articulate.

“Often with recognition of thought patterns & emotions, individuals can start to shift behaviours and gain empowerment to make changes over behaviours that aren’t working or strengthening those that are beneficial.

Art therapy gives our clients the ability to ‘be in the moment’ and often helps to regain the sustained attention that is often lost due to the prolonged effects of addiction.
