Music Therapy in Addiction Treatment
The purpose of a music therapy is to improve self expression and group interaction skills through the use of music. The Cove uses music therapy to help our clients suffering with drug and alcohol addiction to express themselves in a productive and healthy manner. The skills acquired through music therapy are coping tools our clients can use when they need to express themselves. The music serves as a non-threatening vehicle to express feelings related to addiction and helps facilitates group discussion.
At The Cove music therapy we also teach our clients the rules of reading and interpreting music. We have a wide range of instruments from which clients can begin learning how to play. Some of our instruments include guitars, drums, keyboards and more are able for clients to choose from. We also offer lessons teaching our clients the skill of song writing – this is often how clients choose to express themselves. These methods during music therapy help our therapists to analyze the issues of our clients but, it also provides a form of entertainment and stress relief.
By using these tools to create music our therapists are able to understand the meaning and feelings our clients are trying to express. Whether it is regarding the past, present or future therapists will gain an understanding of what our clients are currently working through.
