Recent studies show that music is closely linked to addiction and can function as an integral part of recovery. This research-based book demonstrates how music and music therapy can be applied in a variety of treatment settings to bring about therapeutic change. Addictions such as alcohol, gambling and drugs are all covered in this interdisciplinary text, and chapters explore everything from the meaning of music in the lives of addicts to devising music therapy programs, enhancing coping strategies and preventing relapse. Lifestyle issues are also considered, along with therapeutic communities and connections in the brain between addiction, music, memory and emotion. The strategies outlined are relevant to addicts and recovering addicts of all ages. This book will be of interest to music therapists, substance abuse counsellors, and anybody else interested in the link between music and addiction.
