ABOUT THE MUSIC
Recovery Unplugged incorporates music into every aspect of our treatment experience in a way that heals the mind, body and spirit. Part of this includes helping clients to express themselves through their own written music and lyrics. This exercise has multiple therapeutic benefits, including helping clients regain their confidence and get to the root causes of their substance use in ways that traditional talk therapy often can’t. One of the great things about our composition and songwriting therapies is that that very often produce some truly special original music. Eligible clients are given the opportunity to record their own original material.
We also offer 24-7 immersion in music through personalized playlists and our regularly updated YouTube, Spotify and iHeartRadio channels. Although there is a musical common thread throughout our treatment process, clients do not need to have a musical background to heal at Recovery Unplugged. Just be open to letting it heal you.
Recovery Unplugged frequently hosts artists who have successfully battled substance abuse in their own lives. Through our partnership with Face the Music Foundation and other key players in the music industry, we give our clients an opportunity to connect with musicians and songwriters who understand the recovery process and want to share their insights and experiences while throwing down some amazing songs in the process.
FEEL GOOD FRIDAY
Feel-Good Friday is a cornerstone of our musical therapeutic programming. It allows clients to engage with music in a collaborative concert-like setting through live performances by special guests and our very own award-winning musical staff. Feel-Good Friday is hosted by our Director of Creative Recovery, Richie Supa, and features special musical guests on a rotating basis. Songs performed at Feel-Good Friday feature intense emotional subject matter that is meant to resonate with clients and help them think about how these themes relate to their own lives and recovery.
