Bethel Woods Center for the Arts invites you to our support group for family members impacted by the addiction of a loved one.

Creative Arts Therapy introduces various aspects of the arts in a safe, non-judgmental space to facilitate personal growth and healing. Our group offers family members an opportunity to awaken their creativity in a supportive, community-centered process that will lead to emotional release, self-compassion and new insight.

Each session is facilitated by licensed Creative Arts Therapist Candace Rivela. Learn from the challenges and successes of others who can relate to your situation and find your inner strength through a process of creative discovery on the historic grounds of the 1969 Woodstock festival. Weekly sessions will incorporate group discussion and sharing, mindfulness exercises, creative arts activities, and experiences on our campus - including visitation to The Museum.

This program is FREE, but RSVP is recommended as each group is capped at 20 participants at a first come, first serve basis.
No art experience is necessary; must be 18+ to participate.
