What is Art Therapy?

According toThe American Art Therapy Association (AATA), art therapy is defined as, “an integrative mental health and human services profession that enriches the lives of individuals, families, and communities through active art-making, creative process, applied psychological theory, and human experience within a psychotherapeutic relationship.”

Art therapy has the ability to engage the body, mind and spirit in ways that are different from talk therapy alone. Visual expression has a way of empowering clients to see real and lasting changes in their lives. Art therapy should always be facilitated by a professional art therapist.

Springboard played such a pivotal role in turning my life around. My willingness to surrender allowed it’s incredibly attentive, knowledgeable, loving and supportive staff to work their magic and help me to turn my life around. I’m forever grateful for both the staff and amazing fellow clients I fought the good fight with every day there. Thank you, from my heart, Springboard!

This place is one of the best places. This being my first time in treatment I was lost and didn’t know what to expect. They made it so easy to transition to. The staff is caring, loving, and very respectful. My fellow patients were also amazing. I would do anything for them. Although I don’t hope to ever be back as a patient. I will be back to check in and share my progress in sobriety. 100% would highly recommend!
