Addiction Recovery

Clients in addiction recovery programs can benefit from receiving music therapy treatment. Music therapists use a variety of music-based interventions to help residential and out-patient clients improve their mood, discuss issues, find solutions, socialize, de-stress and find clarity as they emerge from the fog of addiction. Most adults respond positively to music and will happily participate in music therapy sessions. Because music has the potential to go where words cannot, clients will often share things during music therapy sessions that they might not in traditional talk-therapy sessions. Music therapy helps clients connect to something they value while they’re in treatment. The therapist helps internalize that value and helps it grow. Some common goals for clients in addiction treatment include:

  • Improving mood and energy level.
  • Normalizing the environment.
  • Socializing in a positive setting.
  • Expressing thoughts and feelings.
  • Improveing self-esteem and self-awareness.
  • Revealing suppressed or subconscious thoughts and feelings.
  • Developing personal insight.
