The Chesterton Art Center will be hosting the works of clients from Frontline Foundation’s Art Recovery Program in the Luella DeWulf gallery during the month of November, starting with an Opening Reception on Sunday, November 6 from 2-4.
Frontline’s Art Recovery program runs weekly in their Chesterton location as well as the LaPorte office. The group is lead by Director of Clinical Services, Allen Grecula and Art Recovery Instructor Brian Dortmund, who is a local artist and owner of Artsmith Studio. The groups explore the 12-Steps of Recovery and are facilitated by professional substance abuse counselors and involve a wide variety of artistic mediums and encourage self expression. The Art Recovery sessions (as well as their Music Recovery program) are intended to provide additional support alongside their other outpatient treatment services which include:
Clinical Substance Abuse Intake Assessment and Evaluation
Peer-to-Peer Group Counseling
Faith-Based 12 Step Applications
Relapse Prevention Group Sessions
Family Group Meetings
Pre-registration for the Art Recovery program is required as group size is limited. For questions, please call Frontline at (219) 728-1638. The Frontline exhibit will hang at the Chesterton Art Center through November 30.
