Experiential Therapy Services for Substance Abuse Services in Kentucky

There are many different methods of therapy and counseling used to help addicts through an addiction. Drug treatment programs in Kentucky will offer addicts and their families' various forms of counseling and therapy. This can include experiential therapy, which is a therapeutic technique that uses expressive tools and activities. This can include animal care, recreational activities, art, music, guided imagery or anything that can help recreate past events. When working through this form of therapy, addicts will address negative emotions attached to their addiction. This can include re-experiencing past events, and past and present relationships. Drugs and alcohol provide a temporary escape but will amplify any and all emotions. Drugs will make negative emotions feel worse, and this part of the reason why an addict will continue to abuse drugs. Most addicts will not want to express the feelings they are experiencing. Experiential therapy techniques can be an effective way to help addicts express their emotions, within a healthy environment.
