ABOUT US

OAD’s mission is to improve the overall mental health of military veterans by increasing the cognitive and social functions of military veterans suffering from and/or diagnosed with a mental illness such as PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Bi-Polar disorder and/or sexual trauma, by providing creative arts therapy, classes and workshops in the areas of photography, painting, creative writing/poetry, sculpting, yoga and much more.  OAD’s mission is to improve and restore a sense of personal well-being.

 

OAD’s creative arts therapy programs fosters self-awareness, social skills and increases self-awareness.  Artistic self-expression aids in self-discovery which many veterans suffering from invisible disabilities such as PTSD, Depression and Anxiety have lost a sense of personal well-being.

Art therapy is beneficial to people of all ages, including adults who have emotional, cognitive, and /or physical disabilities. Our nation’s Veterans often return home with acute psychological or medical conditions that impair functioning, disrupt family relationships, and prevent reentry into the workforce. Others may develop chronic disorders such as posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) that require months or even years of counseling and rehabilitation. For Veterans who are receiving psychiatric care for PTSD and other emotional conditions, art therapy can be an effective form of treatment, either as an adjunct to other therapies or as a form of individual or group psychotherapy.

VETERANS EXCITED ABOUT ART THERAPY

“I have heard and read about the benefits of Art Therapy. At this point in my life I am open to trying anything.

Phillip Hudson

“I'm excited about OAD's holistic treatment options. I strongly dislike mediations. I'm ready to work on healing myself in other ways.”

David Cruz

“I'm looking forward to the one-on-one Art Therapy session. I suffer from PTSD, Anxiety and Depression. The opportunity to be able to visibly translate my unconscious feelings is profound. I am looking forward to starting a journey toward healing. ”
