What is Activity Therapy?
Activity therapy is a fresh, new take to complement our structured addiction treatment programs. Royal Life Centers at Sound Recovery believes that guest-centered experiential therapies promote healing through creativity. Not only do they exercise different parts of the brain, but they also tend to be more hands-on than other forms of therapy. In addition, experiential therapy often uses expressive tools to reenact past experiences.
Activity therapy might include art, music, and journaling for therapeutic purposes. Our activity, adventure, and equine-assisted therapies are also considered experiential therapy.
Writing down feelings and thoughts helps with anxiety management, stress reduction, and coping with depression. In particular, journaling can be a very effective tool for treating substance use disorder. As a result, writing emotions on paper can reduce their intensity.
According to the American Music Therapy Association, music therapy can:
- Promote wellness
- Manage stress
- Ease pain
- Express feelings
- Enhance memory
- Improve communication
- Promote physical rehabilitation
The relationship between music and emotions is often a powerful one. Royal Life Centers at Sound offers different music groups covering topics such as musical healing so that guests can experience the power of music for themselves.
