ADDICTIONS & RECOVERY
Addiction is a disease of the body (physical), mind (cognitive & emotional), and spirit. Music Therapists address each of these domains dependent upon presenting issues and client goals. Treatment facility philosophy may also provide a framework for goals. Common approaches include Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy(DBT), Motivational Interviewing, 12-Step, and Change Theory.
