Art & Music
At Harbor of Grace Enhanced Recovery Center, we employ a wide range of therapy methods proven to remove obstacles to progress, including art and music therapy. Art therapy helps alcoholics and addicts alleviate stress, learn to communicate constructively, and explore different aspects of their own personalities. Our art therapist works with patients in a small group setting conducive to personal expression. Long an accepted method of treatment, music therapy helps patients address physical, emotional, cognitive and social needs of individuals through a combination of creating, singing, moving to and/or listening to music. Research on art and music therapy supports their effectiveness in many areas, including overall physical rehabilitation, increased motivation for treatment and greater emotional support for clients and their families through expression.
Equine therapy is a form of psychotherapy using horses as an instrument of therapeutic healing. At Harbor of Grace Enhanced Recovery Center, our certified equine therapist is also a licensed chemical dependency counselor. Lisa uses her horses to facilitate emotional growth and healing, often assisting clients who are resistant to traditional therapy.
