How Music Therapy Supports Recovery

Music Therapy & Addiction Treatment

When it comes to mental health and wellness, music therapy has been proven to be beneficial. However, it can also help during the recovery process.

Addiction & Co-Occurring Disorders

A co-occurring disorder, or dual-diagnosis, is when a person with addiction issues is also living with a mental health disorder. Oftentimes those struggling with mental illness turn to mind-altering substances as a means to cope when their mental health concerns go unaddressed.

Common co-occurring disorders that accompany addiction issues include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder.
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

What is Music Therapy?

Music therapy is a form of treatment that involves using music as a means to address various disorders, one of which is substance use disorder. Music therapy uses a combination of listening to, creating, and performing to help patients to meet their individual goals.

  • Healthy coping skills.

  • Fosters a sense of patience.
  • Supports mood regulation.
  • Promotes self0-awareness.
