“Serenity Boat Sunset” photograph by Eric G., third place winner, National Association of Drug Court Professionals’ 2022 Art of Recovery art contest.

Art therapy has been used in addiction treatment since the 1950s. Research shows that art is a powerful tool for conveying the emotions and ideas related to recovery that may be difficult to verbalize.

As part of National Drug Court Month 2022, the National Association of Drug Court Professionals (NADCP) hosted the “Art of Recovery” art contest for treatment court participants and alumni across the country.

Eric G’s Serenity Boat Sunset as well and other submissions, are being displayed in a special gallery at RISE22 in Nashville, Tenn., as well as online at:
