Ceramics-Friend or Foe?


Ceramics is another creative endeavor offered by Right Path House. For some residents, working with paint and clay relieves stress but for some, it creates stress. For the ones where ceramics is a stress reliever, they realize that when they focus just on the clay, they're distracted from their problems. For the others who become stressed, they come to realize there is no right or wrong and that they are not being judged. In ceramic class, whatever a resident produces can help increase a feeling of self worth.

Ceramic work helps in cognitive reasoning skills and socialization. By increasing their thought and motor skills, their frustration level may be reduced and more patience and endurance may result.

After rehab, in-home care, and/or extended care, we think sober living is the next logical step toward recovery life. From SAMHSA research, we offer the four pillars of recovery: (1) community, (some life skill support,) (2) mental and physical wellness; including membership at the gym and yoga studio, an emphasis on whole food in shared evening meals, and professional therapy delivered from the surrounding community, (3) finding purpose in work or school and (4) re-integrating into a re-structured family dynamic or a new home. We welcome those with or without a history of treatment and understand that a whole - person - healing is needed to allow sustainable recovery to begin.
