Most of the recovering addicts feel uncomfortable in the environment of traditional therapy centers. Experiential therapy takes these recovering addicts outdoors; into the art studios, rock climbing and plenty of other places. It includes using engaging activities that liberate the patient from the trauma of the past. Different activities like arts and crafts, role playing, music, acting, animal care, prop, guided imagery, and other forms of recreation help the patients re-experience good memories from the past and recent relationships. Some addicts feel hesitant to talk openly with their therapist in the depressing environment of therapy centers so their therapist takes them to the environment where they feel comfortable; like art studios, parks, etc. Through this therapy, a recovering patient learns how to face his problems without turning to drugs. It also aids the patient to maturely face basic issues such as repressed emotions, unconscious clashes, unresolved trauma, or poor problem-solving skills. These issues are difficult to be identified and explored using traditional talk therapy alone. This therapy helps the patients gain a greater sense of self awareness and self confidence. It gets them in touch with their deepest desires, motives, needs and both good and bad emotions.
