“The studio is a great place for residents to be
creative and have the freedom to practice different things.”

Music & Self Expression

Sparking the creative process without the use of drugs or alcohol is a very important step in early recovery. Re-starting the imagination takes internal motivation, work, and coaching. Discussion and encouragement are needed to begin the process of playing or writing music. One of the by-products of addiction is poor self-expression. Coming out of this thought pattern is difficult. Playing music in a healthy environment is a new experience, and practicing self-expression while allowing thoughts to flow freely without fear can feel quite foreign at first.

When a resident is ready to record a project we call in an engineer who guides resident in the recording process. The prospect of editing, mixing, and mastering a piece of music is really exciting for residents. We try to create one CD per year that is devoted to the writings of the residents. The process helps to provide feelings of accomplishment. There is great satisfaction found in the experience of completing a task from beginning to end, and residents take pride in their successes.

“Sober doesn’t mean you
have to stop being creative.”

Rehab Recordings was created as a beacon for those who come to Little Creek to begin their recovery and explore their musical abilities in that process. Learning how to express one self musically in sobriety can be a challenging process. Sometimes if you see it done you can do it.
