Experiential Therapy Services for Substance Abuse Services in California

Experiential therapy is a specific form of therapy, which is commonly used at many of the drug treatment programs in California. Essentially, this type of therapy uses expressive tools and activities, such as animals, art, music, guided imagery, and recreational activities to help addicts express negative emotions. This form of therapy is often part of a combined therapy approach and is effective for addicts who are unable to express the negative emotions they are feeling. Substance abuse is difficult to deal with, and most addicts will not reach out for help or want to talk about what is happening. Experiential therapy can be an effective way for an addict to explore their negative feelings and re-experience emotional situations within a controlled environment. When struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, it is important to reach out to local treatment resources for help. Various types of inpatient and outpatient drug rehab centers operate within the state of California to help addicts and their families.
