Why Writing to Treat Addiction?

History has revealed to us that men come through our doors with a wide variety of personal traumas and emotionally painful experiences that, through “the isolation of addiction,” have never seen the light of day. The Writing Program at Tree House has been specifically designed to provide our clients, using a structured series of expressive writing assignments, with a unique platform that enables each man to uncover and identify those incidents that have been hiding in the dark for years AND bring them “into the light.” Once this occurs, these traumas and experiences no longer possess “the power of darkness” and the doorway to healing is wide open.

A note from George Coleman

The Writing Therapy Program at Tree House Recovery is a structured series of writing assignments that make it possible for our clients to find a clearer understanding and acceptance of their world, how they perceive it and how they best fit into it. As the Director of that program, I could explain in great detail about how the Program is delivered OR I could allow our graduates to “say” what they have found here. ( Note: If you were considering going to a particular restaurant for the first time, you would probably want to talk to someone who has been there.)
A 2014 graduate of Naked Writing would tell you…

“I never was one to vocalize how I felt or explain the things I’ve been through, but I was one that tightly held onto that physical and emotional weight for so long, while it literally ate me up from the inside out and made me a shell of a man, whether I knew it or not. That all changed when I plugged into the Naked Writing Program and was blessed with the chance to put things into perspective in dealing with a lot of uncomfortable things that I dug up from my past, getting them on paper, talking about them, expressing how they made me feel and then, with my Literary Therapist’s guidance, being able to let go of them. That is when all those things lost their power over me.”
A 2015 graduate would declare to you that…

“through the Naked Writing Program, I gained lenses of clarity and honesty that I’ve used throughout my writings to overcome great obstacles and grow immensely, both emotionally and mentally. I’ve experienced serenity through the practice of literary therapy, the most amazing form of relief I’ve felt in sobriety. The Tree House Naked Writing Program has impacted and changed my life forever for the better.”
A 2016 Naked Writing graduate would point out…

“my experience with the Naked Writing Program has been nothing short of great. Although challenging at times, I have no doubt that the Naked Writing Program has greatly impacted my life. During the Program, I have learned many things about myself that I may not have discovered if it had not been for all those in-depth writing assignments. Not only was I able to discover the real me, I was able to move on from many past traumas that I have held onto for way too long. I also discovered that I want to live.”
A 2017 graduate would inform you that…

“I have had probably the most progress and understanding of the way my mind works in the Naked Writing Program. My Literary Therapist has helped me far more than any of the therapists, doctors or psychiatrists that I have seen in the past. If it wasn’t for the progress and things I’ve gotten through in Naked Writing, I don’t know where I would be or how I would feel about myself today. I have gotten the most closure from my past in the Naked Writing sessions with my Literary Therapist and become more comfortable and confident enough to share them with others.”
A 2017 graduate of Naked Writing reveals…

“Naked Writing has been a real experience. Not just the writing assignments, but also the discussions afterwards with my Literary Therapist. He would somehow be able to read between the lines and bring things to my attention that I didn’t even realize were there and needed to be addressed. He introduced me to a different way of looking at things, a new perspective/perception. Because of Naked Writing, I can now see things from all angles, opposed to my former, singular and very negative viewpoint. Today, I can see the beautiful duality in all things and, for this, I am forever grateful.
