Children’s Play Therapy
At Recovery 4 Life, we offer Children’s Play Therapy for children who have lived or are living in a family suffering from addiction. We recognize that children are affected by substance use of their parents and or loved ones, without the proper treatment children are more likely to continue the cycle of addiction and end up struggling themselves later on in life. Our Children’s Play Therapy program helps children of drug addicts or alcohol abuse 6-11 years old, express their fears and emotions through play in a place they can feel safe. Interacting with staff members and other children helps them to build trust, experience healthy social interactions, and learn new approaches to old problems. By allowing the children to play out their feelings, they are able to express anger, fear, guilt and shame they may feel for themselves or their loved ones. This interactive program enables children to approach their problems at home and ultimately re-engage with their family.
