Using Music to Heal

Music has a variety of useful physiological applications, many of which are being used every day by doctors, therapists and other care professionals. Music helps manage chronic pain by providing sensory stimulation that evokes responses in patients and can be incredibly useful in the treatment of withdrawal-related discomfort. It has also been demonstrated to work in a variety of other of clinical settings, including palliative care, pediatrics, surgery and anesthesia. It has the ability to engage us and hold our attention in ways that traditional conversation often lacks. The melodies, timber and rhythms allow us to connect with it on an unfiltered emotional level. Recovery Unplugged has harnessed this emotional power to help patients access their internal voice, gain their confidence and safely confront trauma and other issues associated with their substance abuse.

The Recovery Unplugged Treatment Process

Patients undergo a variety of music-based therapies, including music appreciation, composition exercises, performance in group therapy sessions, therapeutic journaling and lyric writing and much more. These exercises, combined with detox and withdrawal management, individualized counseling and medication-assisted treatment (if applicable) help patients launch a multipronged and well-rounded recovery while gaining the emotional tools they need to prevent relapse in high-pressure situations. Everyone has the innate ability to connect with music; Recovery Unplugged has observed the profound behavioral and physiological changes that music can bring forth, and has applied them to our treatment model. Since our inception, we have helped thousands of patients recognize and embrace the various healing benefits of music in their everyday recovery.
