Creative therapies are an integral component of WD Recovery and Wellness Centers’ treatment. For many individuals, the spoken word may not be enough to completely express what they have been experiencing. Fear of not being understood or reluctance to speak what has been viewed as unspeakable can damper self-exploration. Through creative therapies, individuals are provided an opportunity for expression, explanation, and resolution in a non-verbal format. In addition, creative therapies often open up a window to awareness and insight into areas that the individual may not already understand. Through different mediums such as art, dance, music, movement, role-playing, and recreation, our clients experience alternate methods of self-expression in a safe and non-confrontational manner.
“Why I Want Recovery” I want life, not this death that I have lived in I want peace, and not anxiety I want health and strength, not weakening and decay I want to receive what I am given, and not regurgitate be it food, friends, compliments gifts or gaiety
I want to nourish my body and nourish my soul I want to love myself so that others I can love I want to clearly see myself so the world I can make out I want to tell the truth and stop living in this lie I want to stand up for myself and not to compromise
I want to feel to dream, to try and not hold back, restrict and die No longer wish I to deny myself the chance to learn to fly I want to be free just to be me to comprehend serenity That’s why I want recovery
