Music therapy is a universal language that brings very different people together, builds a sense of community, and creates transformative positive energy that can -- and does -- help people re-create a better, stronger and addiction-free life.
(PRWEB) September 17, 2013
Best Drug Rehabilitation, a leading treatment facility that implements structured and planned regiment of care that is geared to the personalized needs of each client, has launched a new video that highlights how music therapy is used at the facility to promote improvements in all three levels of wellness: mind, body and soul.
Led by professional musician Dan “the Music Man,” Best Drug Rehabilitation’s Music Therapy is a transformative program that is fundamentally about inclusion and expression. Regardless of their level of musical ability, all clients are given an instrument and invited to participate in everything from impromptu jam sessions to live performances. Plus, clients are encouraged to sing and write songs, both as a means of building self-confidence and as a way to express themselves in fun and positive ways.
Yet most importantly, Best Drug Rehabilitation’s music therapy program reminds clients that, just as how they can create a song, they can also create the path that their life is on. What’s more, they have the power to ensure that their inspiring future is different from their difficult past.
“One of the most pervasive and, frankly, most offensive stereotypes that persists in our society is the view that all individuals who suffer from addiction are somehow all the same, and fit into the same neat and tidy demographic category,” commented Per Wickstrom, the Best Drug Rehabilitation’s CEO and someone who has personally battled drug and alcohol addiction. “The blatant truth is that people struggling with addiction hail from all kinds of backgrounds and have unique histories. And that’s why music therapy is so remarkable. It’s a universal language that brings very different people together, builds a sense of community, and creates transformative positive energy that can -- and does -- help people re-create a better, stronger and addiction-free life.”
As noted by the American Music Therapy Association, music therapy is widely regarded as powerful clinical approach that can be used to promote wellness, reduce stress and pain, enhance communication, and help people share their feelings.
