Recovery Unplugged had the honor of being featured on the popular Texas News and Lifestyle website Elpasoinc.com last week. The piece highlighted the Recovery Unplugged treatment approach and the positive impact of music in addiction treatment. It also included first-hand insight from some of our very own staff and former patients. Recovery Unplugged was honored and grateful to be featured in the piece, and we look forward to illustrating the innumerable benefits of music in addiction care when and wherever possible and appropriate. As pioneers of music-based treatment, we welcome any and all opportunities to further discuss its successes, evolution and future.
One of the most important and pertinent aspects of the piece was the idea that music-based healing is for everyone, regardless of their musical background. Each person has their own special relationship with music, whether it’s simply enjoying or being moved by their favorite song, or writing and performing songs of their own. Music therapy is an ideal and clinically proven way to harness the healing powers of this art-form to break down emotional barriers and facilitate healing on a deep level, where simple conversation very often falls short. The article also discussed the critical importance of customized addiction treatment for every type of patient, whether they seek music-based care or any other type of modality.
More and more treatment facilities are utilizing deeper levels of music therapy as part of their rehab programs. Whether their patients are suffering from anxiety, depression or any other type of co-occurring mental health issue, music has proven to be an effective relief agent in many cases. The Recovery Unplugged team remains committed to the growth and innovation of the music-treatment paradigm, as we help more and more patients to heal in their own way through this amazing therapy.
