MUSIC

FOR RECOVERY

People, places, and things can trigger both positive and negative memories and emotions. Music can do likewise.  Hearing a particular song that the individual connects to a difficult time in life can help the individual examine what they were doing, thinking and feeling  at the time in order to better understand his or her behavior.  Likewise, music that evokes a happy memory or thought can ease tension and bring about a feeling of peace and calm. 

MUSIC FOR RECOVERY

SATURDAYS 7 - 8:30PM

Our weekly Music in Recovery sessions are led by John Wayne Cormier, local vocalist and guitarist in recovery.  Participants each share one song representative of their addiction struggle and one that is meaningful to or representative of their recovery. The songs can be played or sung by the participant, played or sung by John,  or played from the Internet. Participants who play an instrument are invited to bring it for accompaniment. The sharing of the songs is followed by an opportunity to explain their meaning or representation.
