Music, Art, Yoga and Meditation Therapies

Escaping from the hassles of everyday life are instrumental to alleviating stress, removing toxicity, and reconnecting with personal aspirations through positive engagement. During addiction treatment and recovery, clients learn the importance of rekindling creative outlets and learning mindfulness techniques. Through music, art, yoga, and meditation, life becomes more manageable and sobriety, more enjoyable. When you quiet the mind, you nurture the soul.


Music Therapy

Using Music as an Effective Treatment Method

Music therapy continues to be utilized as an integral part of the rehab process due to its many positive benefits for individuals suffering from drug addiction and/or alcohol addiction. This holistic therapy method is an evidence-based approach to healing, allowing patients the freedom of expression while reconnecting with self often forgotten or subdued during active substance abuse.

Research shows that music therapy induces specific moods that trigger positive characteristics in a person, whether listening to live or recorded music or engaging in playing a musical instrument or singing.

Through music, a therapist can help a patient identify positive and negative feelings and further learn how to face the negative consequences of their addictive behaviors by using healthier coping mechanisms and constructive tools. This alternative can replace the former habit of substance use to better deal with life when trials and tribulations become too difficult to handle.

Music therapy helps patients:

  • Examine emotions and self-esteem
  • Enhance positivity
  • Empower themselves through success
  • Improve self-awareness
  • Increase attention and concentration
  • Build coping and problem-solving strategies
  • Enhance mindfulness and relaxation techniques
  • Improve interpersonal skills

Art Expression Therapy

“No pressure. Just relax and watch it happen.”

Effective & Creative Treatments for Our Patients

Art expression therapy is a holistic practice that has shown to produce positive outcomes for individuals who are suffering from drug and/or alcohol addiction. This evidence-based, holistic therapy is often used to induce specific moods which trigger positive characteristics. Creating art can help foster those moods and feelings, allowing the therapist and patient to identify positive and negative feelings.

The patients are given effective tools that can be used when addressing the negative consequences of their addiction. Since creating art is often a nonverbal process, and expands the ways a person can convey ideas and emotions, art therapy provides an opportunity to explore, understand, and resolve issues in a person’s life that may be too difficult to talk about in a regular conversation.



Yoga & Meditation

Peaceful Rehabilitation in Scottsdale

Yoga allows us the ability to process disconnection and discomfort. In active addiction, there is a gap between the mind and the heart. Even though the brain knows drugs and alcohol are addictive and the psychological pain is so great, when a person is actively using, they don’t care. The senselessness in self-medicating with drugs and alcohol disguises the fact that there is another solution to pain.

We practice yoga and meditation at Acceptance Recovery Center so that patients can learn to quietly sit and calm the mind and body with breathing, and experience feelings of comfort and inner peace. Acceptance Recovery Center’s highly skilled and certified yoga instructors show a series of postures that are basic enough for beginners. Yoga offers patients the skills needed to accept and handle the uncomfortable feelings and sensations that may lead to relapse.

Yoga provides our patients with a variety of benefits, including:

  • Stress relief
  • Increased physical stamina and strength
  • Self-reflection and increased self-awareness
  • Healthier exercise and eating habits
  • Heightened self-confidence and improved self-image
  • Pain relief
  • Better sleep
  • Increased energy levels
  • Reduction in fatigue
  • Emotional healing
  • Overall health and wellness improvement

Meditation Enhances Every Moment

Having the ability to take life in, the good and bad, is essential to experiencing happiness. Many people find themselves getting caught up in “a moment” and then carrying those negative emotions with them for hours, weeks, and more. In fact, it’s easy to spiral one unfortunate instance into something much larger by adding it to other thoughts, misperceptions, and fears of the future.

Ultimately, we can spin our emotions out of control putting relationships, personal health, and recovery at risk. Instead, through any one of many forms of meditation, an individual can compartmentalize the beauty of each moment. In the event of an adverse situation, meditation keeps the negativity in that moment without carrying it forward or attaching it to other matters.

Positive effects of meditation include:

  • Improved focus
  • Improved memory
  • Lessened agitation
  • Reduced impulsiveness
  • Increased rational response
  • Diminished emotional reactiveness
  • Improved ability to let go of negativity
  • Enhanced contentment
