These songs were written, rehearsed and recorded in 2 hour workshops with up to 40 people in early recovery. Most of the clients we work with have little or no prior musical experience.
The Recovery Research Institute at Harvard Medical School did a study of our work in 2016 and found that these workshops increase cohesion in groups, provides a sense of hope and catharsis and contribute to success in long-term recovery.
