What Is Music Therapy?
Music therapy is not the same as just listening to music for entertainment. Each individual’s music therapy program is done in a therapeutic practice that is clinical and evidence-based. Music is used as a tool to help people achieve goals within their treatment program. Those who participate in a music therapy program receive personalized treatment that is designed for their needs. It can benefit individuals’ physical, psychological, social, and cognitive needs and has proven effective in treating a variety of conditions, including:
- Trauma and PTSD
- Substance use disorders, including alcohol addiction
- Muscle tension, headaches, and chronic pain
- Depression and anxiety
- Problems with sleep, such as insomnia and hypersomnia
Those who participate in music therapy are not expected to have a background in music or any musical talent. Anyone can try it and find encouragement in finding new ways of expressing themselves. It can improve one’s concentration and focus and help with finding a meditative state that promotes healing. Using music as a tool can be just one part of a comprehensive plan for recovery from addiction.
