Saving Souls with Rock & Roll: Efficacy of Playing Music in Treatment
Date & Time
Friday, June 21, 2019, 2:25 PM - 3:25 PM
Wes Geer
Rock to Recovery was created to help soothe the restless souls of those in recovery. We do this by creating a “band” and writing and recording songs together with Rock to Recovery’s staff of professional musicians, who are also in recovery. We help bring fun into treatment and recovery by offering a natural escape from the fear-based mind. This helps people grow a sense of belonging and self esteem. We help to vent emotions by writing lyrics and singing together for release, in real-time. We tie in a positive theme of hope in recovery throughout the whole process. When the session is done, our “band” members feel a new energy all throughout their minds This session will explain the importance of playing music as part of a treatment program.
