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.

Music therapy can serve children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly with mental health needs, developmental and learning disabilities, Alzheimer’s disease and other aging related conditions, substance abuse problems, brain injuries, physical disabilities, and acute and chronic pain, including mothers in labor.
