Healing with the Arts

Our goal at The Bridge to Recovery is to create different avenues toward healing, as everyone responds uniquely and has their own process for doing so. Harnessing the creative process to do that has proven very effective.

Benefits of Art Therapy

  • Learning how to tap into our creativity is a wonderful coping skills tool for the future.
  • Self-expression helps us better understand self.
  • Engaging in creative activity is relaxing, calming, and helps with anxiety.
