Experiential Therapies in Las Vegas

Recovery Through Art, Activity & Self-Discovery

Addiction is a time-consuming disease that often discourages people from exploring new activities. Recovering addicts often have trouble figuring out what to do themselves. Experiential therapies at The Nestled Recovery Center encourage residents to discover new activities that engage their personalities and interests and help them reconnect with their old hobbies that were abandoned because of addiction or create new hobbies to help them cope with the ups and downs of newly found sobriety.

It’s not unusual to feel reluctant to talk about addiction or feelings after going through medical detox. Patients who are not ready to engage in psychotherapy may feel more comfortable trying experiential therapy before opening up. Listening to music, trying arts and crafts, and participating in physical activities all help to regulate emotions and organize thoughts.

What Is Experiential Therapy?

Experiential therapy is a therapeutic approach that emphasizes active, engaging experiences as the foundation for emotional and cognitive processing. Unlike traditional talk therapies, experiential therapy involves activities, actions, and direct involvement in therapeutic exercises. This method allows individuals to explore their emotions, thoughts, and reactions in a vivid, hands-on manner, promoting deeper insight and lasting change.
