Art is a powerful tool for self-expression, creating an avenue for feelings, intuition, and insight. Tapping into the healing power of art does not require "talent," but simply a willingness to open to your inner life. Engaging in art can support strong, long-term recovery. Special guest Robin M. Gilliam has been in long-term recovery since February 6, 1991. She climbed her way out of the hole of the desperation of addiction and domestic violence to become a CPA, artist, and author. Her novel Gift of Desperation is a provocative story of hope and inspiration wound around Robin's real artwork. Robin's Recovery Art Studio offers many resources. She shares her journey and the ways art powerfully supports recovery.
