What Is Music Therapy?

As part of our music therapy program, you will sing, create, or listen and move along to music as part of this therapeutic modality. Work alongside professionally trained musicians and music therapists. Music therapy sessions can be on both an individual and group level, tailored to address your needs. In dealing with mental health and emotional health challenges as a result of substance abuse, goals of music therapy include:

  • Better decision making
  • Stress and anxiety relief
  • Encouraging emotional exploration
  • Reducing the risk of relapse
  • Relaxation
  • Communication
  • Improved quality of life
  • Stronger coping skills

You do not have to have musical talent or the ability to sing or play an instrument to take advantage of our Rock to Recovery program, but you may be surprised at how you can step up and try something new as a result of a program like this. We’ve seen great accomplishments from those who take advantage of this program, and they carry this confidence into other areas of their life. 

How Music Therapy Assists in Addiction Recovery

That initial allure of drugs and alcohol may have been to relieve emotional anxiety and pain; however, using music can be an even more attractive way to help manage similar issues. Plus, a hands-on program like Rock to Recovery occupies the mind and body, making it easier to avoid substance use. The unique experience of playing music builds new neural pathways and promotes balanced brain chemistry.
