Reconnecting with music is an essential part of addiction recovery for so many of our clients. Like everything else in life, music tends to fall by the wayside for someone living within the confines of alcohol or drug addiction, but the healing power of music is undeniable. Music often reminds us of our early days of drinking and drug use — before addiction, before the consequences. Rock to Recovery helps reestablish and restructure the music experience without drugs and alcohol. Contact Rise Above by calling 855.948.6325 to learn how Rock to Recovery can improve your rehab experience and help sustain recovery.
What Is Rock to Recovery?Rock to Recovery is an iconoclastic, innovative, and authentically supportive music-based addiction recovery program. Our professional staff of clean and sober musicians helps other sober musicians reestablish their relationship with creating music. It is more organized than a jam session but has a similar feel. The band leader guides the process, helping clients develop their musical talent and songwriting skills in a supportive environment. In this unique program, clients work to develop their musical prowess, interpersonal skills, and public speaking abilities as a part of their addiction recovery journey. Rock to Recovery songs are uploaded anonymously to SoundCloud and made available for people to download and share.
Rehabilitation for MusiciansFor many musicians, drugs and alcohol have always been a part of their musical experience. While some musicians are able to drink and use drugs without consequences, many of us are not. In the Rock to Recovery program, music is transformed from a trigger to a healing entity. At Rise Above, we believe music can help people turn a corner in their addiction recovery. Music therapy has been known to help people with the following conditions:
- Bipolar disorder
- Meth addiction
Addiction, Health, & Music TherapyDependence on psychoactive substances occurs when a person requires an altered state of consciousness in order to feel balanced and normal. As we learn in treatment, feeling normal does not mean the person is functioning normally. For an addicted person, it’s usually the opposite. The unique experiences of playing and listening to music help repair neural pathways and promote balanced brain chemistry. The goal of each Rock to Recovery session is to write and record an original song with the help of each group member. The healing power of music helps bring people together in this team-focused sober community.
