At Royal Life Centers, our programs are designed around a multi-faceted holistic approach. Our hands-on music therapy program is an integral part of that approach. Through our music therapy program— Sober Studios,- our guests are able to express and channel their feelings, thoughts, and emotions in a healthy way.
Research has shown that music therapy is effective in several areas including physical rehabilitation, reducing anxiety, increasing motivation to take an active role in treatment, and providing emotional support for guests.
Additional therapeutic objectives of our music therapy program include:
- Using artistic expression as a coping mechanism
- Learn about self and others through art-making, poetic/literary response, movement, and/or music
- Practice positive risk-taking and working outside of personal “comfort zone”
- Reduce stress and anxiety through leisurely activity
Our music therapy program takes place in our in-house music production facility, known as Sober Studios. Sober Studios is a multi-track recording studio and therapeutic art space based on Royal Life Centers campuses. Guests are able to choose Sober Studios as a part of their treatment plans to learn songwriting, music production, and audio recording basics. Throughout our 12-week program, guests write lyrics and create original audio recordings that document their recovery process.
In Sober Studios, our guests work with a music therapist using state-of-the-art technology and recording equipment. During these group sessions, guests write and produce their own music while working towards clinical goals and objectives, and conquering individual fears and barriers that go with the process. A topic is chosen at the beginning of each session which can be something that the guest is struggling with or feels is important to their recovery. Guests write lyrics and then record onto the musical instruments to be saved and turned into an MP3. Guests are able to have this MP3 file sent to them via email. Music Therapy helps each guest improve self-expression, creative thinking, and effective communication.
