Discover What Makes Paint Desert Recovery Unique

For many people, addiction stems from traumatic events in the past. The abuse of drugs and alcohol acts as a coping mechanism for dealing with these hurtful memories. If you are a woman who uses drugs or alcohol to numb the pain, it is crucial to recognize that addiction is not a weakness or a choice; it is a disease. And, like other diseases, it can be treated by licensed professionals, like the team at Painted Desert Recovery.

One of the therapeutic approaches that we use to heal emotional scars is known as experiential therapy. This kind of therapy has been shown to be an effective way to address and mend the effects of past traumatic events. But what exactly is an experiential therapy program?

What Is an Experiential Therapy Program?

Experiential therapy, also known as experience therapy, is a therapeutic approach that helps women process the past, understand the present, and plan for the future. Unlike traditional methods of therapy that rely mainly on talking, an experiential therapy program uses participation in activities to heal. For example, a client in an experiential therapy program may take a hike, participate in a yoga session, or engage in cooperative games with other clients.

There are two main goals of an experiential therapy program. The first goal is to help women to take a leadership role in their own lives. This is accomplished by women taking ownership of their experiences. The second goal is to empower women. When women in an experiential therapy program begin filling their time with positive experiences, they gain an enhanced sense of power. With this increased inner strength, women will be more able to handle challenges to their recovery process.

Benefits of an Experiential Therapy Program

An experiential therapy program has numerous benefits for women in recovery.

Among the many benefits of an experiential therapy program are:

  • Stress management
  • Development of an active, healthy lifestyle
  • Improved body image
  • Increased sense of self-worth and self-esteem
  • Healthy coping strategies
  • Building positive relationships
