RU Encore utilizes the healing power of music through a variety of therapeutic techniques to help patients access dormant emotions and heal from substance abuse and underlying mental illness. We also rely on the more traditional elements of treatment such as talk therapy and group dynamics. Patients undergo a targeted and customized treatment program that addresses their unique care needs. We are committed to helping patients heal as individuals, not just a composite of their symptoms. Through treatment that addresses the immediate effects of addiction, as well as its root causes, RU Encore can help you or your loved one reclaim your health, and live the life you deserve.
Integrating Music into Treatment
Recovery Unplugged was founded based on the researched and educated assertion that music can be a tremendous healing resource for patients struggling with drug and alcohol addiction. We have seen time and again the significant positive emotional impact on both our patients and the music-loving population in general. We start our treatment process off by simply directing patients to bring some of their favorite songs to treatment. We then engage in a preliminary examination regarding what about the pieces resonate with the listeners (lyrics, key-changes, tempo and even personal emotional context).
We also integrate a variety of music-based techniques into group therapy, such as lyric and songwriting, performance, recording, production and more. At the end of their treatment programs, patients not only learn to use music to break down emotional barriers, they also achieve a profound sense of accomplishment through the writing and creation of their own material. They record their music in RU Encore’s state-of-the-art studio and leave with a record of their songs. These recordings can serve as a motivational artifact during the more vulnerable points during the post-treatment recovery process.
Where Tradition Meets Innovation
Detox and Rehab
Before patients can begin RU Encore’s music-based behavioral therapy, they must undergo a comprehensive course of medically supervised detox. We are pleased to offer detoxification and withdrawal management under the expert supervision of a medical doctor and capable and compassionate nurses. We also offer in-depth individual counseling to help patients address the triggering causes and trauma that may have led to and sustained prolonged substance abuse. RU Encore offers the full weight and resources of the Recovery Unplugged treatment approach in a convenient and flexible intensive outpatient care program.
