Music therapy has become a favorite alternative treatment method that uses the healing power of instruments and voice to soothe the pain of alcohol and drug withdrawal. Since the 1970s, music therapists have drawn the creative arts into substance abuse recovery to help addicts express themselves. Music can sing to the soul to lift the dark, distressing cloud of addiction. At Kemah Palms Recovery®, music therapy is an instrumental part of treatment to balance your mood and mental health for long-term sobriety.

Music Therapy for Addiction Recovery
In addition to performing music, your therapy sessions may include songwriting workshops to put your thoughts to chords. Lyric analysis exercises can keep you from feeling alone in your emotions. Engaging in music games like “Name That Tune” and “Song Charades” can induce playful laughs. Some therapists will even blend inspiring playlists with drawing or painting to let your imagination run wild. Music is one of the most flexible addiction treatments that can get you singing and dancing with a renewed zest for living.
Goals of Music Therapy in Addiction Treatment
Music therapy won’t likely cure addiction alone, but Kemah Palms Recovery® believes this supportive treatment add-on plays a pivotal role. Its main goal is to help patients identify and accept the emotions they have been escaping through drugs. Opening your mind to music can correct the distorted thinking brought on by the disease of addiction. Discovering your artistic talent could also give you a fresh purpose and better appreciation of your worth. Meaningful engagement in therapeutic music brings endless benefits, such as:
- Empowered confidence and self-control
- Improved immune system functioning
- Greater concentration and optimism
- Lower anxiety and blood pressure
- Higher oxytocin levels for pain relief
