Expressions in Music

“Music is the universal language of mankind” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Sparking the creative process without the use of drugs or alcohol is a very important step in early recovery. Restarting the imagination takes internal motivation, work, and coaching. One of the by-products of addiction is poor self-expression. Coming out of this thought pattern is difficult, so discussion and encouragement are needed to begin the process of playing or writing music. 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.

At Little Creek Lodge in Pennsylvania, we encourage and support residents in their creative endeavors, and help them on their quest to find their voice. Our music studio offers a fun and unique way to create something beautiful and meaningful, in a safe and secure environment. Our residents are encouraged to try new things, and to experience the joys – and frustrations – that come with the creative process.

Recording in our studio

Residents can use the music room for practice. 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. We try to create a CD per year that is devoted to the writings and recordings 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 success.

“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 oneself musically in sobriety can be a challenging process. Sometimes if you see it done you can do it.

Our musical projects are created by Little Creek residents with the goal to inspire others who are recovering from drug or alcohol addiction to follow their creative paths. Residents involved in the project became a part of something that helped both themselves and others along the journey of life.
