Our Activities

Apart from the 12-step rehab program, we have activities for addicts that help them to overcome drug addiction. They help our patients to express themselves better, be optimistic and resist the urge to relapse.

  1. Art Therapy

Addicts in recovery make artworks, draw and paint under the supervision of professional art therapists. It is a non-verbal communication of their thoughts and emotions. They carry out the following activities:

  • Drawing
  • Painting
  • Coloring
  • Collaging
  • Making art and graphics journals
  • Mandala drawing
  • Scrapbooking
  • Creating sculptures
  1. Meditation Therapy

We provide a serene environment for meditation and give you a chance to seek inner peace. Our patients forgive their pasts and usher in the brighter future after completing our sessions. Activities involved in mindfulness meditation therapy include:

  • Breathing
  • Observation
  • Listening
  • Awareness
  1. Dance Classes

Recovering addicts in our center get to let out their anger, fear, and sadness through dance. We have expert instructors who interpret every move addicts to make in the session. Activities involved in therapeutic dance classes include:

    Dance in a circle.

    Engage in ballroom dances.

    Jump in your dances.

    Mirror dancing with a partner/ instructor.

  1. Theatre Group Sessions

We also tell stories through plays and drama therapy. This way, recovering addicts gain confidence, boost creativity and unmask what they feel. It is a stepping stone for some of the actors we have produced from our center. Instructors have them do the following:

  • Perform a scripted play.
  • Tell stories, whether from your own experience or imagination.
  • Use puppets to describe an experience you went through.
  • Improvise tools and come up with props.
  • Role-play with a partner or the drama therapist.
  • Use masks when telling a story.

We are the center for treating addiction with a difference.
