Addiction is a state characterized by compulsive engagement in rewarding stimuli, despite adverse consequences, but you already knew that.  You also that here at Recovery Unplugged we specialize in a rehabilitation approach that is unique, long-lasting, and truly individualized. We combine traditional and cognitive behavioral rehabilitation approaches by using music as a catalyst to break down defenses to help facilitate, motivate and inspire the change necessary for long-term recovery and sobriety in fighting addiction.

We use an amazingly powerful tool that no other drug rehab center in Florida has: music-assisted treatment. Clients are able to use music as a catalyst to start to break down the barriers we build through their lives and their addictions. Along with music groups and live performances clients at Recovery Unplugged have the opportunity to explore a creative side of themselves through music, writing lyrics, and even recording their songs in our studio regardless of prior musical experience.
