Your Well-Being Is in Good Hands
MADD therapy is a therapeutic environment that uses expressive arts modalities to enhance personal therapy. Through the use of Music, Art, Drama, and Dance modalities the therapeutic environment becomes tailored to you. The word MADD is the acronym for Music, Art, Dance & Drama.
The uniqueness of MADD therapy is the ability to provide therapy in a creative space. We believe that therapy can be done in any space, but a creative space will allow the client to feel more at ease and comfortable with expression of emotions.
