THE RHIZOME NETWORK
The Rhizome Network is an unique treatment approach for the treatment of substance abuse. It is an attempt to connect together the varied voices of individuals, groups and institutions as they work toward such goals as described above. The aim is not to publish information upon this site (though some of that will occur), but rather to connect to online links which are already in operation. (5/22/2011)

This film highlights the use of art as a therapeutic tool. Two perspectives are showcased within this film: the perspective of an art educator who works with adolescents and the perspective of an art therapist who works with the adult developmentally disabled population. (5/22/2011)
While curriculum guidelies for educators may not apply to independent therapy, the guidelines developed by Florida State University may be helpful. The guidelines include informational articles, lesson plan suggestions, a glossary and sample artworks that can be adapted to non-educational settings. (5/22/2011)
