New Brunswick, NJ, October 23, 2017 (Newswire.com) - The Center for Great Expectations, (CGE) is pleased to announce that highly acclaimed, Art Psychotherapist, and CGE team member, Moriah M. Mylod will be displaying her artwork at the Outpatient Facility Open House this Friday, October 27th, 2017 from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm.

SAMHSA’s Substance Abuse Treatment: Group Therapy guide describes art therapy as a type of expressive group therapy that can help people express their thoughts and feelings that they may not be able to say with words. This therapy is especially helpful for people who have underlying psychological issues related to their addiction, such as a history of abuse. Since creating art is often a nonverbal process, and expands the ways a person can convey ideas and emotions, art therapy provides an opportunity to explore, understand, and resolve issues in a person’s life that he may not feel comfortable talking about in a regular conversation.

The Center for Great Expectations (CGE) is one of a handful of programs in the country that specializes in gender-specific treatment in an outpatient setting for women and men with substance use and/or co-occurring disorders with a strong emphasis on trauma-informed care. In addition to group and individual therapy, CGE provides psychiatric evaluations and follow-up, medication management, family services, parenting education, relapse prevention skills and HIV testing.

"It is an honor to share my personal artwork that reflects my spiritual practice, inner world, and self-care applications as an Artist, Art Therapist and Being in the world. In the art-making process I become more self-aware through positive self-expression, personal growth and healing which in turns allows a better understanding of myself and those in my life including those whom I serve and counsel," shares Moriah M. Mylod, MAAT, Center for Great Expectations.
