Our adjunctive therapies – horticultural, art, music, recreation, and social enrichment – are acclaimed as breakthroughs in engaging clients in recovery. Led by caring professionals who are experts in their fields, adjunctive group sessions help clients find new ways to express their thoughts and emotions, learn new skills, build confidence, and interact with their peers and the community.
Some clients may be not be ready, willing or even able to express their thoughts and feelings verbally. For these clients, adjunctive therapies, that encourage expression through movement, music or hands-on activities with clay, wood, plants or stones, can help open doors to the process of sharing and communication.
For all clients, adjunctive sessions provide a break from talk therapy and an opportunity to focus on something besides mental illness. In addition to hands-on activities on campus, many adjunctive sessions involve projects in the community, helping clients understand their ability to contribute to society in positive ways.
Clients in our residential and day treatment programs participate in group adjunctive therapy sessions as part of their weekly schedule of clinically structured activities.
