What Is Music Rehab?

Music therapy has been shown to help people with the following conditions:

  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Dual diagnosis
  • Cocaine addiction
  • Opioid addiction
  • Meth addiction
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

In music rehab, clients develop their musical prowess and interpersonal skills as a part of their addiction recovery process. Songs are uploaded anonymously to SoundCloud and made available for clients to download and share.

Music reminds many people in addiction recovery of their early days of drinking and drug use—before the consequences. Creating a mental connection between music and drugs is dangerous because it turns music into a trigger to use. At Solution Based Treatment & Detox, we believe no one should have to live without music.

How Does Music Rehab for Addiction Work?

Music and a sense of belonging can encourage people to maintain sobriety. The unique experience of playing music helps repair neural pathways and promotes balanced brain chemistry. Digital versions of the songs are uploaded anonymously to SoundCloud and made available to clients for download or sharing. The goal of each session is to write and record an original song with each group member’s help. The healing power of music brings people together in a team-focused sober community.

Rock to Recovery at Solution Based Treatment & Detox offers an intensive music-based curriculum focusing heavily on skill-building, self-awareness, conflict resolution, responsibility, and resilience in a sober group. Our Rock to Recovery curriculum includes personal and professional development exercises that help band people develop creative writing, public speaking, singing, instrumentals, and music production. Participants are provided with a well-rounded, multi-faceted music industry experience. Rock to Recovery is an iconoclastic, innovative, and genuinely supportive program. We recognize each member’s growth process.

What Are the Origins of Rock to Recovery?

Rock to Recovery (R2R) was formed on December 12, 2012, by Wesley Geer—well-known as a member of the bands Hed P.E. and Korn—after his experience in rehab due to overcoming drug and alcohol addiction. As a long-time musician, music took on a new meaning to Geer when he was raw and new in recovery. After staying sober for two years, Geer was offered the job as Korn’s touring guitar player. After successfully touring the world with the band for the next few years, Geer gave back, bringing music into addiction treatment through R2R. Geer, with the help of friends in the music industry, has grown R2R into a prevalent and therapeutic modality in various treatment settings.

In our music therapy program, Solution Based Treatment & Detox clients get hands-on experience writing lyrics, composing, mixing, and recording songs of their creation on studio recording equipment. Rock to Recovery songs are professionally mixed and produced with help from our R2R staff.
