La Ventana’s treatment centers in Thousand Oaks offer multiple types of experiential therapy to treat clients. Since our clients vary significantly with regards to their physical status, their mental and emotional states, their long-term goals, and their social networks, our staff maintains a current, evidence-based, holistic array of therapeutic options to include in clients’ individualized treatment plans.
Music in Recovery is one of the experiential programs we offer to clients. Clients can express their creativity, individuality, and emotions through song and dance. Clients work independently and with other clients to develop teamwork and cooperative skills. The act of writing lyrics gives clients a safe and creative way to express their emotions. And musical interactions can have calming effects that stave off restlessness, boredom, and other negative emotions that can lead to relapses.
