Trauma and Addiction: Art Therapy With the Dually Diagnosed Female Client

Art therapy has been used in the treatment of chemical dependency for many years. A large percentage of women in treatment are dually diagnosed with a serious mental illness. Current research also shows an increasing link between trauma and chemical dependency. Many art therapy interventions, along with various mental health programs, focus on either the treatment goals for addiction or the treatment goals for trauma. This case study identifies which art therapy interventions might best combine these treatment goals within the same program. It also examines how unresolved trauma may affect the recovery process. The art therapy interventions took place over a period of seven months with dually diagnosed women at a residential treatment center.
