When do you usually listen to music? Is it when you are upset or happy? Is it when something great has happened in your life or when you need to stop thinking about something that makes you sad? Do you use music to provoke sad feelings? There are many times when people use music.
The truth is that no matter what the intention, most of the time music is a positive thing. For this reason, our Midwood Addiction treatment center team offers music therapy as part of our addiction and mental health disorder treatment plans. We truly believe that the music therapy service we offer can help to improve your recovery journey.
What is Music Therapy?
Some people aren’t sure what music therapy is and that is okay. We are here to help you and other people who are looking for a recovery plan to better understand this service.
Music therapy is an alternative or holistic therapy that helps people to work through physical, mental, cognitive and emotional issues. Whether you are trying to provoke a positive or negative feeling, music can help you to do that. Why would you want to bring up negative feelings? One reason to do this is to release feelings you have been hiding away. For example, if it has been a long time since you cried, a certain song may help you to release your sadness or anger, which could make you cry. There are actually therapeutic benefits of crying.
If you want to learn more about music therapy, don’t hesitate to let someone from our team know today. We would be glad to walk you through this service and how it works here at Midwood.
Taking Part in Music Therapy During Addiction Treatment
Many people take part in music therapy while they are going to an addiction treatment program. If you have an addiction, music therapy can help you to process your feelings regarding the addiction. For example, if you have been in denial about your addiction for a long time, it can be tough to let go of that belief. However, by listening to certain songs and processing them, it could help you to see that admitting to your addiction can help you to move past the addictive lifestyle and start living a healthier lifestyle.
