Music Therapy for Drug and Alcohol Treatment

Music Therapy has been shown to have a significant effect on an individual’s relaxation, respiration rate, self-reported pain reduction, and behaviorally observed and self-reported anxiety levels. A coordinated program of music and music therapy interventions in response to crisis or trauma, designed and implemented by a qualified music therapist, provides opportunities for:
• Non-verbal outlets for emotions associated with traumatic experiences
• Anxiety and stress reduction
• Positive changes in mood and emotional states
• Active and positive participant involvement in treatment
• Enhanced feelings of control, confidence, and empowerment
• Positive physiological changes, such as lower blood pressure, reduced heart rate, and relaxed muscle tension
• Emotional intimacy with peers, families, caregivers
• Relaxation for family groups or other community and peer groups
• Meaningful time spent together in a positive, creative way
• Increase in self-esteem
• Teach coping skills for emotions that can later be generalized in every-day living.

Group music therapy sessions will include:
• Drumming and Drum Circles to increase non-verbal emotional expression and help the clients work together as a group.
• Improvisation on various instruments to encourage the creative process, emotional expression, and increase self-esteem.
• Progressive muscle relaxation to soothing music to decrease anxiety, fear, and stress associated with crisis and trauma.
• Lyric analysis of client preferred music for emotional expression.
• Songwriting and composition for an increase in self-confidence and as an outlet for emotional expression.
• Guided meditation and imagery to teach clients coping skills for anger, anxiety, and fear associated with crisis, trauma and the disease of addiction.
