Recovery Songwriting Workshops
During a typical workshop clients work together with Music for Recovery
to write, rehearse, and record an original song on a recovery topic in approximately two hours.
The song is posted on a facility-specific SoundCloud page
where clients can access it for free indefinitely.
The songwriting process gives clients fun, hands-on, experiential way to engage with recovery skills including letting a process unfold, repetition, slowing down and working as a group.
The over 700 songs created in Music for Recovery workshops have been streamed over 46,000 times post-treatment.
Workshop includes all equipment, SoundCloud Page, handouts, supplies, evaluations, editing and posting to SoundCloud.
