A few words about our services: Theatre Group And Performances
Drama therapy is more than just what you think when it comes to Broadway shows and performances or local thespians. Drama therapy has been used for a long time to treat a variety of problems.
It is a form of psychotherapy that has been making its way through treatment centers across the country to help those who suffer from addiction.
It started in the 1930s as a way to help people with anxiety issues. Now it can help lots of problems where stress is a contributor including addiction.
Group therapy is one of the most effective treatments of drug addiction so why wouldn’t drama therapy work just as well. It gives a new way for people to express themselves and deal with their addiction and learn to communicate. Drama therapy can help provide tools for people to say and enact things they otherwise might not.
Props have always been important when it comes to psychotherapy. This means drama therapy is definitely a good idea and should work in the same manner. Sometimes reenacting past situations is an excellent way for people to discuss and understand what they have been through and use that to help them find new ways to cope or deal with things.
One of the best parts about drama therapy is giving people the chance to look over their own actions with new eyes. They can judge their behaviors and change how they approach things. It can help them realize how drug addiction affected them and others overall.
There are so many reasons that people end up abusing drugs. They might use it so they don’t feel sorrow or pain or they might use it to hide fear or painful situations they don’t want to acknowledge. There are many ways that drama therapy can help those with addiction.
Some benefits of drama therapy for addiction include:
– Recognizing and talking about situations that are painful and related to their addiction.
– Exploring the root of a drug or alcohol problem and really digging out the causes to examine.
– Addressing the situations which are known to cause fear and anxiety after leaving the safety of rehab because real life can be jarring compared to it.
– Helpfully giving a boost of improvement to social skills within a supportive role-playing environment.
Drama therapy is a great way to dig into issues and figure out what is going on.
