Music has a way into the soul. Everyone has their own types of music they prefer to listen to when they are sad, angry, grieving or having any other type of emotion. Did you know that music can also help you to overcome an addiction or work through a mental health disorder? Research shows that music can have a profound impact on the recovery process.
Here at Harmony Oaks Recovery Center, we want to help you find your way throughout the recovery journey which is one reason we offer music therapy. It is a service many of our clients have benefited greatly from and we believe it could help you, as well.
What is Music Therapy
Music therapy is a holistic service that helps to improve physical, cognitive, mental and emotional health. During the music therapy sessions here at Harmony Oaks Recovery Center, our experienced, trained therapist works with clients to help them overcome difficult things in their recovery, build their self-confidence and explore what is holding them back. There is much more to it than that. However, this can give you a basic idea of what music therapy is. With music as the foundation to these therapy sessions, it helps people to feel more comfortable working through issues and connecting to what they are working on, too.
How Does Music Therapy Benefit Clients in a Treatment Program
There isn’t just one way that music therapy is used in treatment programs. It does vary depending on the client and what they need at a given point in their recovery. However, some of the ways that it can benefit you during your treatment program include:
